HC Deb 07 February 1962 vol 653 c50W
Mr. Dempsey

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what are the results of his discussions with the Coatbridge Town Council, regarding the adoption of a scheme to remove the Monkland Canal; and when he proposes to make a start with this project.

Mr. Maclay

The town council is considering a preliminary report by engineering consultants on piping and infilling the canal within the burgh. It is for the council to decide whether it wishes to proceed with the project; when the council submit a suitable scheme I shall be glad to discuss with it what grant will be payable.
