HC Deb 21 February 1939 vol 344 cc193-4
44. Mr. Johnston

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when operations to deal with the floodings in the Kelvin Valley under the Scottish Land Drainage Act, are likely to commence?

Mr. Colville

The Parliamentary procedure prescribed by the Land Drainage (Scotland) Act, 1930, will, it is hoped, be completed early in March and provided weather conditions are favourable, operations will be begun immediately thereafter.

61. Mr. Davidson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he proposes to execute the drainage works required in the Kelvin Valley drainage scheme by direct labour, or through the various local authorities in the area, or through a private contractor?

Mr. Colville

The intention is that these works will be carried out by means of direct labour.
