HC Deb 18 November 1968 vol 773 c216W
88. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what progress has been made in attracting alternative employment to the special development areas, especially those in Scotland.

Mr. Shore

It is early yet to assess the full effect of the special incentives for these areas but they are undoubtedly helping to produce new employment opportunities. Four advance factories have already been allocated to industry in the special development areas in Scotland.
