§ Mr. N. McLean
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when work will start on the improvements to the Fort William-Mallaig road which have already been approved.
§ Mr. Maclay
A trunk road Order has been made in respect of nine minor diversions which are to be constructed as part of this scheme. Negotiations for the acquisition of the necessary land have started and if they proceed satisfactorily it is hoped to invite tenders at the beginning of August so that work may start after the holiday period.
