§ Mr. Macquisten
asked the Minister of Transport why a portion of land, amounting to one-tenth part of an acre, situated in Ardrishaig and sought to be purchased by the County Council of Argyll for the purpose of erecting a public convenience and shelter, has been refused to them although there is a public need for such convenience and shelter; arid for what purpose connected 1216W with the operations of the Ministry does he insist on retaining this piece of ground?
§ Mr. Burgin
The erection of a public convenience on the site suggested would have a detrimental effect on the value of the Ministry's adjoining building sites and property. There is no lack of such facilities at the place in question. The County Council have been offered an alternative site on the Ministry's property which is easy of access and situated near the Canal offices, Pier and bus stands.
