HC Deb 29 October 1957 vol 575 cc3-4
4. Mr. Pryde

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if the right-of-way from Polton to Rosslyn Castle in Midlothian is now fit for pedestrian use.

Mr. J. N. Browne

My right hon. Friend is informed that the Penicuik District Council is satisfied that the right-of-way is now free from obstruction and fit for use.

Mr. Pryde

If district councils in Scotland do not earn sufficient under the system, would it not be far better to face the question in a straight way and place the finances of district councils on a more solid, sane basis?

Mr. Browne

I think the hon. Member should put down a separate Question on that, as it is far removed from the question of Polton and Rosslyn Castle.
