asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware of the anxiety and bitter feeling in Duntocher, Dunbartonshire, because work has not yet begun on the new school promised long ago; and if he will say when building will commence.

Mr. J. Stuart

I am aware of anxiety and I hope that work will begin before the end of the year.
