§ 38. Sir EDWARD ILIFFE
asked the Minister of Transport what is the approximate estimated cost of the sections of the Glasgow-Edinburgh road within the counties of Linlithgow and Midlothian respectively; and what is the contribution these counties are making towards the cost of the work?
§ Mr. GOSLING
The sections of the Glasgow-Edinburgh road within the counties of Linlithgow and Midlothian are estimated to cost £745,000 and £116,000 respectively. Contributions will be made by the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, as unemployed men drawn from these two cities will be engaged on the work. The two counties mentioned, while not assisting the scheme financially, will be prepared to assume responsibility for the maintenance of the road when completed.
