HC Deb 17 March 1971 vol 813 c345W
73. Mr. Gourlay

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what advantages have accrued to the burgh of Buckhaven and Methil as a special development area during 1970.

Mr. Anthony Grant

The advantage of being a special development area cannot be measured in relation to limited periods. There is no doubt that these areas, as a whole, have benefited from being so regarded.
