HC Deb 27 May 1960 vol 624 c86W
Mr. N. McLean

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what notification he has received as to the number of men who are likely to become redundant at Aviemore after the dieselisation and subsequent closure of certain railway workshops there; and what plans there are for promoting suitable industries and alternative employment in Badenoch.

Mr. Heath

I understand that no final decisions have yet been made regarding staff reductions at the Aviemore motive power depot. Badenoch is in a development district and the opportunities offered by the Local Employment Act, 1960, are available to firms wishing to set up or expand in that district.
