§ Mr. Dempsey
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will now authorise the improvement of the Whifflet Viaduct Bridge, and indicate the nature of the proposed improvement, its estimated cost and the starting and completion dates, as Coatbridge is now regarded as a growth area.
§ Mr. Noble
I have told Coatbridge Town Council that I am willing to authorise this scheme in 1964–65 if it can be prepared in time. I expect the cost to be of the order of £200,000, but the details of the scheme will depend on the recommendations of the consulting engineers whom the town council have appointed to prepare it.
