§ 77. Mr. Malcolm MacMillan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what consideration he has given to the proposals for a ferry service between Stornoway and Ullapool; what public expenditure this would involve in respect of landing and servicing facilities at the termini; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Leburn
My right hon. Friend has had no approach about such a proposal since March, 1962, when the promoters were told that, in the circumstances then prevailing, there was no prospect of Government assistance.
