HC Deb 20 December 1960 vol 632 cc134-5W
58. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will now make a statement on the loss of life and personal injury, and loss of and injury to livestock, and other material damage, in Aberdeen and district caused by the recent heavy storms there.

Mr. Maclay

I regret that as a result of the storms in the Aberdeen area last month one man was drowned and one other person was injured.

My information is that there was some slight damage to roads and telephone communications, and that, while there were some cases of losses of crops, no cases of loss of livestock were reported, and the damage to agricultural land and fixed equipment was not serious.
