HC Deb 21 February 1972 vol 831 c218W
68. Mr. McNamara

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will make a statement on the extra allocation of moneys for employment purposes in Humberside.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

I assume the hon. Member is referring to the Special Environmental Assistance Scheme announced on 7th February. No specific allocations have been made for particular areas or regions. I hope local authorities in the Humberside area will undertake as much work as they can in the time available under the scheme.
