§ Mr. Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many miles of road have been constructed in Scotland under the Agriculture (Improvement of Roads) Act, 1955; and what has been the aggregate cost involved.
§ Mr. Leburn
My right hon. Friend regrets that, owing to the inevitable time-lag in the submission by local authorities of final claims for grant up-to-date, particulars of improvement schemes completed are not available; but up to 30th November, 1959, he had approved for grant schemes covering 176 miles and involving a total cost of£595,000.
