Sir T. Moore

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware of the discrepancy between expenditure on the road programme in the five years ending 1968–69 between the figures given on 18th November and those in Command Paper No. 2188, Central Scotland, A programme for Development and Growth, namely, trunk roads £61.4 million and classified roads £43.7 million proposed Exchequer expenditure only, and trunk roads and motorways £57 million and classified roads £44 million including contributions of highway authorities, respectively; and what is the reason for this.

Mr. Noble

The figures in Grind. 2188 are for Central Scotland and the figures in my Answer of 18th November were for Scotland as a whole.
