§ MR. CALDWELL (Glasgow, St. Rollox)
I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can now state the intentions of the Government with reference to improving the means of communication and developing the material resources of the districts in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, the object of the recent visit to the locality by the Secretary for Scotland?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN,) St. George's, Hanover Square
No, Sir; I am not yet in a position to do so. The Secretary for Scotland has informed me generally of the impressions made upon him by his visit to the locality in question, and we are very desirous to render aid in some of the directions which he has pointed out, but no actual plan has been formulated.
