HC Deb 13 January 1971 vol 809 cc61-2W
53. Mr. Sillars

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will now allocate an additional £10 million for public works as a contribution to the easing of Scotland's current unemployment problem.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

We have brought forward into the current winter about £1¾ million of essential public works which in the normal course would not have been done until later. To improve the longer-term employment situation we have announced changes in the methods of assisting industrial expansion.
