§ Mr. Patrick Maitland
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what expenditure he has already sanctioned for provision of the civic centre of the new town at East Kilbride; on what specific objects the money will be spent; and when he expects completion.
My right hon. Friend has told the development corporation that he is prepared to approve expenditure estimated at £40,000, and he is awaiting specific proposals. The money will be spent on road works and other services, and I understand that the corporation hopes to complete the works by the end of this year.
