HC Deb 17 March 1971 vol 813 c347W
Mr. Eadie

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he is now in a position to make a statement about area development status for all new towns in Scotland.

Mr. Anthony Grant

No. My hon. Friend is discussing with the New Towns concerned whether they could ensure a sufficiently substantial and early contribution to relieving the problems of the West Central Scotland Special Development Area to justify the provision of S.D.A. incentives.
