A study of North-East Scotland is already being undertaken by Professor Gaskin of Aberdeen University for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland. I understand that this will include an investigation into the kinds of industry which might prosper in the area, including food processing and timber-using industries. As I said in answer to Question No. 1, the whole range of incentives will be available.
What help is the right hon. Gentleman's Department giving to this survey? It is the first time such a thing has been done. I hope that he is able to do something to help carry it forward quickly.
I shall see that those views are conveyed to my right hon. Friend. If there are other views which hon. Members wish to express, I shall see that they are passed on, too.
