§ Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what are his present plans for improving the main traffic arteries in, and to the north-east of, Scotland through Aberdeen.
§ Mr. Maclay
Schemes are being prepared for the improvement of the Inver-keithing-Perth Trunk Road and the Perth By-pass. Individual schemes such as those at Bridge of Muchalls and Eassie level crossing are going ahead and other smaller improvements are in hand throughout the area. For the present priority in large scale improvements must be given to the routes in central and southern Scotland which carry the heaviest volume of industrial traffic.
