HC Deb 25 November 1958 vol 596 c194
5. Mr. Timmons

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make more money available to Lanark county for road work and absorb many of the unemployed men now signing the unemployed register.

Mr. Maclay

Yes, Sir. I hope shortly to increase the grant allocated to Lanarkshire County Council for road maintenance work this year and it may be possible to bring forward some schemes of major improvement which would otherwise have had to wait a few years.
