HC Deb 06 June 1924 vol 174 cc1610-1W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether, in view of the unrelieved unemployment in the Ross of Mull, Argyll, he will have consideration given to the construction of a cart road from Fionphort to Bagalie, which road, it is believed, was approved, and assistance for its construction promised, by the Congested Districts Board during the existence of that Board?


No application for a grant-in-aid of the construction of this road has been made to the Board of Agriculture for Scotland, and no promise of assistance made by the Congested Districts Board in the period prior to 1912 can be traced. Any application to the Unemployment Grants Committee by the Road Authority which would be responsible for the construction and maintenance of the proposed road will be considered.
