HC Deb 22 July 1968 vol 769 c18W
Viscount Lambton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why he exempted certain national concerns from operating under the Government's Contracts Preference Scheme for development areas so far as the choice of building material is concerned.

Mr. Taverne

National concerns such as the hon. Member has in mind are fully alive to the interests of the Development Areas, but the choice of building materials to meet particular requirements is a matter for their judgment.
