§ Mr. Malcolm MacMillan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals have been submitted to him by Ross and Cromarty County Council for the construction of an eventide home in the Isle of Lewis, and what others, from Inverness County Council, for the establishment of an eventide home in the Isle of Barra.
§ Mr. Maclay
I have approved in principle a proposal to provide a home at Stornoway for thirty-two elderly people; the County Council of Ross and Cromarty will no doubt be submitting its final proposals as soon as they are ready. I have received no proposal from Inverness County Council for establishment of a home in Barra.
