§ 35. Mr. Gordon Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he proposes to take to rebuild the local economy of Dundee.
§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
As a special development area, Dundee qualifies for maximum Government assistance and for the full range of European regional grants. The Scottish Development Agency is giving the Dundee area a high degree of priority: the area is already benefiting from the initiative in the Blackness area and the proposed £39 million project for the waterfront on which the agency will co-operate with the local authorities and the private sector will give a further boost to the local economy.
