HC Deb 29 May 1919 vol 116 cc1464-5W
Lieut.-Colonel A. MURRAY

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether the Report of the Special Committee appointed by him to consider rural transport facilities in Scotland is a document of such a nature as will enable him to consider comprehensively the requirements of all rural districts in Scotland where adequate facilities have been lacking in the past; and whether he will himself, after consideration of the Report, be in a position to initiate such rural transportation schemes as are considered necessary, or whether it is proposed to refer them to the Ministry of Ways and Communications if and when the latter is set up?


The Report referred to will be published at an early date, and my hon. and gallant Friend will be able to judge of its adequacy for the purpose stated. The question of what action should be taken on the Report is receiving my consideration.
