HC Deb 11 November 1964 vol 701 c82W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland to what extent he intends to authorise and assist financially the Islands and Highlands local authorities to provide water for those communities not yet supplied at dates earlier than those imposed by present financial restrictions.

Mr. Ross

I will consider sympathetically any proposals by Highland local authorities for the provision of water supplies in their areas at reasonable cost.
