HC Deb 09 June 1976 vol 912 c1427
16. Mr. Crawford

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will pay an official visit to Woodside, Perthshire.

Mr. Gregor Mackenzie

My right hon. Friend has, at present, no plans to do so.

Mr. Crawford

Will the hon. Gentleman instruct the Scottish Office to cut through the red tape that is presently holding up the reconstruction of the Damhead Bridge between Woodside and Coupar Angus? Is he aware of the ludicrous traffic situation that now exists, in which heavy oil-related traffic has to use back roads to get to and through Coupar Angus?

Mr. Mackenzie

I am conscious of the problem. The hon. Gentleman has raised it with my right hon. and hon. Friends before. However, he knows that this is a matter that he should raise with the Tayside Regional Council, which is responsible for the work.
