107. Mr. John MacLeod

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how many miles of crofter counties road schemes have yet to be completed; and what work is in progress at the present time.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

Six hundred and fifty-seven miles of class I road improvements scheduled under the 1935 Crofter Counties roads programme have yet to be completed. Work is now in progress on two schemes—the improvement of 5.75 miles of A.836 between Borgie and Naver Bridge in Sutherland and the improvement of 4.7 miles of A.815 between St. Catherine's and Strachur in Argyll.
