HC Deb 15 March 1939 vol 345 c426W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the very bad condition of the Milbost and Branahuie road, Point, Isle of Lewis; and can he state what action he is taking, in consultation with the local authority, for its reconstruction?

Mr. Burgin

I am advised that the county council maintain this road in a reasonable condition, having regard to traffic requirements and the limited funds available for the purpose. The initiation of a scheme for its reconstruction rests upon the county council. In the event of their applying for a grant I should be prepared to give the matter consideration.
