§ Mr. WEIR
asked the Lord Advocate, having regard to the fact that the Ross-shire Western District Committee have reported that an extension of Wester Alligin footpath to the end of the township is much needed for the convenience of the people, will he state the estimated cost of the work; and why the Congested Districts Board have declined to make the requisite grant?
§ Mr. URE
The district committee applied for a grant to extend a path previously constructed with the aid of a Government grant. The estimated cost of the extension was £65, and the Board took the view that the case was not sufficiently strong to justify them in the expenditure of more public money on this access.
