HC Deb 17 May 1966 vol 728 c241W
Mr. Russell Johnston

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in determining the size of the next financial allocation to the Highlands and Islands Development Board, he will take direct account of the loss of £2 million per annum which will follow the application of the Selective Employment Tax to the Board's area.

Mr. Ross

The Board has sought discussions about the Selective Employment Tax, and I can only say that I am ready to consider any facts and views they may present.
