HC Deb 17 January 1924 vol 169 cc273-4W

asked the Parliamentary Under - Secretary for Health, Scotland, whether he will authorise the making of a grant towards the cost of the construction of the proposed Sanna-Plocaig road in Ardnamurchan, Argyll, thereby satisfying a very urgent need and help to relieve the local unemployment and distress at present prevailing?

The SOLICITOR-GENERAL for SCOTLAND (Mr. F. C. Thomson, in the absence of the Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Health)

An application for a grant towards the construction of the proposed road was made about two years ago, but the Board of Agriculture were unable to accede to it. Any further statement which may be submitted to the Board will be considered. The question whether the county council would be prepared to undertake the maintenance of the road if constructed would be one of the factors to be considered.
