HC Deb 04 August 1965 vol 717 c333W
Mr. Noble

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, in view of the recent economic measures, whether the programmes for public investment in the Highland counties are to continue in full and without any delays being imposed.

Mr. Ross

These counties are development districts and are therefore covered by the exemptions for capital projects in such districts announced by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer in his statement of 27th July.
