HC Deb 22 July 1970 vol 804 cc155-6W
Mr. Gregor Mackenzie

asked the Minister of Technology if he has approved the investment programme of the British Steel Corporation in Scotland; and if he will make a statement.

Sir J. Eden

The overall programme for 1970–71 was approved by the previous Administration. I understand that it was consistent with investment in Scotland, broadly in line with its present share of crude steel production.
