HC Deb 11 March 1987 vol 112 c243W
24. Mr. Pollock

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has any plans to extend the role of the Scottish Development Agency in areas of high unemployment which do not enjoy assisted area status.

Mr. Rifkind

There is no need to do so since the Scottish Development Agency already provides services throughout Scotland. In the area covered by the Highlands and Islands Development Board the agency complements the services of the board.
