§ Mr. Sillars
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he is taking to stimulate employment in those sectors of the Scottish economy over which he has a direct influence.
§ Mr. William Ross
The Government are concerned to stimulate employment in both the public and private sectors and, to that end, we are implementing the policies for Scotland's economic development set out in the Labour Party's Scottish manifesto. I shall shortly be introducing a Bill to establish the Scottish Development Agency, which will be a major addition to the instruments and resources available for promoting employment and growth in Scotland.
