HC Deb 03 July 1968 vol 767 c230W
Mr. Monro

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what recommendations he has received from the South-West Economic Planning Consultative Group to help provide employment in the area; and what steps he has taken to implement them.

Dr. Dickson Mabon

The Group has proposed a comprehensive study of the resources and requirements, including in particular the employment requirements, of the South-West. I was glad to be able to tell the Group on 20th June that, subject to consultation with the local authorities, such a study would be put in hand forthwith.
