HC Deb 30 July 1962 vol 664 c33W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in the interest of public health and of economy, he will invite Inverness County Council to undertake at an early date a sewerage scheme in the south end of South Uist to meet the disposal requirements which will be created by the water supply scheme in that area, while the water supply contractors, engineers, key workers and the plant are in the island.

Mr. Noble

If Inverness County Council puts proposals before me I shall certainly consider them. But it is unlikely that a public sewage disposal system for the scattered communities concerned could be provided at anything approaching a reasonable cost.
