HC Deb 24 February 1965 vol 707 c100W
40. Mr. George Y. Mackie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland why the Balnacoil Bridge has been delayed until 1968–69, in view of the local and tourist demand for this project.

Dr. Mabon

I understand that Sutherland County Council has programmed a Balnacoil Bridge scheme for 1967–68. If the Council tells my right hon. Friend that this scheme has top priority among its proposals for improving the classified roads in that year, he will do his best to find grant for the scheme.
