HC Deb 04 March 1965 vol 707 cc289-90W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the President of the Board of Trade to what extent he has exercised his powers in Aberdeen under the Local Employment Acts to pro- vide premises and to make loans and grants for projects likely to create more work, to increase employment and to promote productivity and exports during the last five years.

Mr. Jay

I would refer my hon. and learned Friend to the Answer given to him today. My powers under the Local Employment Acts are for the purpose of providing employment.
