§ Mr. Malcolm MacMillan
asked the Minister of Transport what is now the prospect of the Benbecula bridge scheme beginning at an early date; and the final estimated cost and the financial aid expected from each of the authorities concerned in the negotiations?
§ Mr. Burgin
The work will probably be commenced next month. The Road Fund will bear 75 per cent., the Department of Agriculture 15 per cent. and the Inverness County Council 10 per cent. of the approved cost, which is estimated at £36,995.
