§ MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
To ask the Secretary for Scotland, having regard to the fact that the supply of water for the Infectious Diseases Hospital at Stornoway has been defective for some time, will he state whether the local authority have yet secured a satisfactory supply; and, if not, will he state the cause of the delay.
(Answered by Mr. Sinclair.) I am informed that a proposal to extend the water supply of the burgh of Stornoway to this hospital has been under consideration, 1226 and negotiations between the hospital joint committee and the district committee with that end in view are still in progress.
