HC Deb 24 February 1965 vol 707 cc104-5W
Dr. Miller

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will consider as a matter of urgency the establishing of another new town in Scotland.

A decision will then be taken as to whether to designate a new town there. The scope for further new towns will be considered by the Scottish Economic Planning Council and Board.
