HC Deb 03 August 1965 vol 717 c266W
35. Mr. Wolrige-Gordon

asked the Chancellor the Exchequer how he will take steps to preserve the economy of the North-East of Scotland Development District from the effects of the recent economic measures announced by Her Majesty's Government on the economy of the country as a whole.

Mr. Callaghan

I made it clear in my statement on 27th July that projects in development districts would be exempt from the postponement of capital projects and from the licensing control for construction projects.
