HC Deb 28 March 1960 vol 620 cc95-6W
73. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is yet in a position to announce his further plans to attract to Aberdeen new industries and to expand existing industries there in such a way as to stop the drift of workers away from the City and County of Aberdeen.

Mr. J. Rodgers

I hope that the Local Employment Act which provides the Board of Trade with powers which it did not have before, to build factories in Aberdeen, will operate to the benefit of Aberdeen and other development districts. The Board of Trade will continue in its efforts to attract industry to Aberdeen City and County.
