§ 84. Mr. Gourlay
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he received representations from Buckhaven and Methil Town Council regarding the effects of the proposals in the South East Study, 1961–1981 on the implementation of Command Paper No. 2188, Central Scotland—A Programme for Development and Growth; what was the nature of his reply; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Noble
I received representations from Buckhaven and Methil Town Council on 1st May and a reply was sent to the council on 8th May. It drew attention to the assurances already contained in the White Paper on South East England, that the proper development of the South East would be carried out without prejudicing growth in other parts of the country.
