HC Deb 25 January 1978 vol 942 c646W
Mr. James White

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland why aid under Section 11 of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1966 has consistently been refused to Glasgow in view of the fact that English city authorities with 2 per cent. or more Commonwealth immigrant pupils have been considered as prima facie eligible for grants and that Glasgow education authority is within this category.

Mr. Hugh D. Brown

The extent of immigrant-related problems is less acute in Glasgow or in Scotland as a whole than in many English cities, and in any case my right hon. Friend considers that it is better for projects related to these problems to be assisted under the urban programme.
