HC Deb 15 October 1946 vol 427 c763
10. Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is reconsidering the application of the county council of Ross and Cromarty for financial assistance towards the cost of constructing the Tolsta-Ness road, Isle of Lewis, in view of its value to land settlement, tourist and transport improvement.

Mr. Westwood

I have the county council's application under consideration, and I am arranging for a survey to be made of the area which would be opened up by the proposed road with a view to examining afresh the possibilities of development.

Mr. MacMillan

May I assure my right hon. Friend that his reply will give the greatest satisfaction?
