§ 32. Mr. Dalyell
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish a full statement, giving chronological detail, regarding the action he has so far taken towards reaching a decision concerning the improvement of the canal and railway bridges in Preston Road, Linlithgow, which were the subject of a public inquiry in July, 1962.
§ Mr. Noble
An amendment to the West Lothian County Development Plan proposing additional sites for housing 216 to the south of Linlithgow was submitted in November, 1961. Objections were made, and a public local inquiry was held in July, 1962. I received the report on the inquiry towards the end of January this year and the decision was issued yesterday. I am sending a copy of the letter to the hon. Member.
§ Mr. Dalyell
In view of the unsatisfactory nature of the reply, I will attempt to raise the matter on the Adjournment.
