HC Deb 28 June 1974 vol 875 cc51-2W
Mr. MacCormick

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has completed his consideration of the area to be covered by the Highlands and Islands Development Board; and if he will now make an order placing the island of Bute in the area covered by the board.

Mr. William Ross

No. I wish to know the views of local authorities first, and my Department will shortly be asking the appropriate newly-elected bodies for their views.
