HC Deb 07 March 1957 vol 566 c108W
Mr. N. McLean

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, in view of the fact that an agreement has now been reached between the Inverness County Council and the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board's joint interests in the water rights affected by the scheme for supplying water to Portree and the surrounding area from Storr Springs, when it can be expected that the work will be continued.

Mr. Maclay

Before the work can proceed, the Board and the council must obtain the statutory authority required to give effect to the agreement, the former by a constructional scheme now in preparation, the latter by an Order giving it the necessary water rights.
