HC Deb 10 November 1953 vol 520 cc758-9
30. Lord Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the present position with regard to the Spey Valley Drainage Scheme.

Mr. J. Stuart

It is hoped that work on the Spey Valley Survey will be completed by about the middle of 1954. In the absence of comprehensive arterial drainage legislation, drainage work on the Spey could, of course, only be carried out by means of a voluntary scheme with the agreement of all the interested proprietors.
