HC Deb 12 December 1962 vol 669 cc61-2W
43. Mr. Dempsey

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that the unemployment problem in Coatbridge and Airdrie will be worsened by the proposed plans of the British Iron and Steel Board; and what proposals he has for reversing the unemployment trend there.

Mr. Whitelaw

I have no such information, but the area is part of a development district where the Government will continue to do everything possible to encourage industrial development.
