§ Q9. Mr. William Hamilton
asked the Prime Minister if he will make a statement on the reactions which he received on his recent visits to development areas, especially in regard to the consequences for those areas of United Kingdom accession to the European Economic Community.
§ The Prime Minister
During the Recess I visited Scotland, including Glasgow, and the North Riding of Yorkshire, when I discussed issues of economic development affecting these areas. I have found a growing understanding of the advantages which membership of the European Economic Community should bring to all parts of the country, including the development areas.
