HC Deb 08 April 1936 vol 310 c2778
71. Mr. M. MacMILLAN

asked the Minister of Transport whether he intends to allocate the special grants promised to the Highland counties during the Ross-shire by-election by unclassified roads; what amount he intends to grant from the Road Fund; and when these grants will be made?


The special 160 per cent. grants, for some £4,250,000 worth of road work in the Highland counties, are for Class I roads. The Road Fund will pay the whole cost of the works as the work proceeds. No undertaking outside this was made by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs.
