HC Deb 02 April 1980 vol 982 cc230-1W
35. Mr. Gourlay

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is his assessment of the effect on the employment situation in the Levenmouth area, following the withdrawal of special development area status in the autumn of 1980.

Mr. Younger

It is not possible to isolate the effect of regional policy changes on employment prospects in relatively small areas where employment can be heavily influenced by individual industrial developments.
