HC Deb 19 October 1972 vol 843 cc141-2W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State if he will name the senior officials in the Scottish Office who have been directly responsible for new towns in Scotland, between the beginning of the new town of East Kilbride and the present day, giving dates.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

Responsibility for matters affecting the new towns in Scotland, so far as concerns the Scottish Office, rests with my predecessors in office and myself. Considerable numbers of officials in various grades, in the Department of Health for Scotland up to 1962 and in the Scottish Development Department thereafter, have been concerned with the affairs of the new towns. Individuals holding the more senior posts can be identified, as regards any particular period, by consulting the appropriate issues of the Imperial Calendar.
