HC Deb 21 July 1936 vol 315 c277W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware of the potentialities of Loch Lomond and Arrochar, in Dumbartonshire, as centres of a progressive tourist industry if suitably developed by such schemes as road widening and the provision of proper water supplies; and what steps, if any, he intends taking to encourage such development by way of grant or otherwise?


I am aware of the advantages of the district referred to. As regards the second part of the question, I understand the county council are in communication with the Ministry of Transport with a view to a road improvement scheme in the neighbourhood. The Commissioner for the Special Areas has offered a grant towards a scheme for the provision of a water supply for Arrochar at a cost of £8,700, and a grant offered by the Department of Health will assist the provision of a water supply for areas at the south end of Loch Lomond.
