HC Deb 09 December 1981 vol 14 cc403-4W
31. Mr. Lambie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he intends to take any new initiatives to deal with the increasing unemployment problem in the Irvine-Ardrossan corridor.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

I am currently reviewing the needs of this area, which already benefits from special development area status and from the activities of Irvine development corporation, the Ardrossan, Saltcoats and Stevenston enterprise trust and the Garnock Valley task force.
