HC Deb 25 July 1929 vol 230 cc1517-8W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has received a communication, signed by all the small landholders and others on the Heights of Strathpeffer, urging the immediate necessity of putting into repair the road leading from Achperneed railway station to the Heights of Fodderby, of forming a new road from there to join the existing road at the Heights of Dochcarty, and of improving the last-named road; and what action he proposes to take to remedy this grievance?


I have received the communication referred to. It is a matter for consideration in the first place by the local authorities concerned whether this scheme of work should be undertaken. If proposals for carrying out the work and for adding the roads to the county list of highways for the purpose of future maintenance are made to the Department of Agriculture for Scotland by the county council, the possibility of making a Grant-in-aid of the work will be considered.
