HC Deb 18 July 1923 vol 166 c2327W

asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health whether he is aware that the road between Tarbet and Inveraray and the road between Ardlui and Crianlarich, two of the three main roads and the most direct roads to the West and the North-West of Scotland, are now closed for six months, thus shutting off Inveraray and Campbeltown, etc., by road from the industrial districts of Scotland without great detours being made; does he propose in any way to remedy the inconvenience resulting from this action of the road authority; and is he aware that the road from Gairloch to Arrochar and Tarbet has also been closed for a very long time?

Colonel ASHLEY

I have been asked to answer this question. I am making inquiries into the points referred to and will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as I am in a position to do so.
