HC Deb 02 July 1951 vol 489 c194W
112. Colonel Gomme-Duncan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the original estimated cost of the Loch Sloy, Loch Morar and Lochalsh hydro-electric projects; what, to date, is the actual expenditure; and what is the latest estimate for the completion of these projects.

Mr. McNeil

The estimated cost in 1944 of the three projects mentioned was £4,600,000. I am informed that the expenditure on these projects to the end of May, 1951, was £9,043,000 and that the latest estimated cost for their completion —excluding those parts of the small Morar and Lochalsh scheme which have been postponed—is £9,235,000.
