HC Deb 03 February 1964 vol 688 cc115-6W
73. Mr. Gourlay

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if, following the representations made to the Minister of State at St. Andrews House by representatives of Buckhaven and Methil, he will now include the Levenmouth area in the Central Fife growth zone.

Mr. Noble

No. It is important not to draw the growth area boundaries too widely, in order to ensure a concentrated effort in the centre of Fife where it is essential. The Levenmouth area will in any case continue as a development district to be eligible for all the forms of assistance available in such districts.
