§ Mr. Strang
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what further representations he has received regarding the exclusion of Edinburgh from the Scottish development area.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell:
I have received expressions of appreciation for the Government's action in ending last year the exclusion of Edinburgh from the assisted areas, a situation which had been created by the last Government. I have also received representations that the status should be advanced to development area, and I have discussed this with the Lord Provost.
