HC Deb 10 December 1912 vol 45 c237

asked the Secretary for Scotland if the Board of Agriculture received an application from the Shetland county for assistance for a road leading to the post office, Eshaness; and if he can state on what grounds the application was refused?

The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. T. McKinnon Wood)

I am informed that the road referred to by my hon. Friend was on the list submitted by the county council to the Board of Agriculture for Scotland, but was not considered so strong a case as others for which Grants were made. I do not think that the county of Shetland has any reason to complain of the way in which Grants have been made.
