§ 26. Mr. Malcolm MacMillan
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has now received an application from the county council of Inverness-shire for assistance for the purpose of completing the Strond Road, or has urged or encouraged the continuation of the scheme by the county council, in view of the lack of transport facilities in the district and the heavy local unemployment?
§ Mr. Burgin
No, Sir. I have not received any application for assistance, but the county council are aware that I am prepared to consider making a grant from the Road Fund at the rate of 50 per cent. towards the cost of approved works.
