HC Deb 26 May 1952 vol 501 c98W
63. Mr. Grimond

asked the Minister of Transport how far the £479,000 balance of the £750,000 promised for Highland roads is earmarked for new schemes; and how far any proportion of it is to be used on schemes which in any event would have been undertaken with the normal annual grants.

Mr. Braithwaite

A sum of £331,000 is earmarked for new schemes. None of the £479,000 will be spent on schemes which would have been undertaken had the special funds not been made available.
