HC Deb 29 June 1966 vol 730 cc300-1W
151. Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether it is now the policy of the Government to confine road improvement schemes of the type which may be promoted under the Congested Districts (Scotland) Act, 1897 and the Agriculture (Improvement of Roads) Act, 1955 to crofting townships; and whether he will extend these schemes to include roads leading to farms which would rate as crofts were they not owner-occupied.

Mr. Ross

Grants are given for the economic benefit of communities comprising crofts or holdings comparable to crofts, whether owner-occupied or not, in conformity with the recommendation of the Taylor Commission on Crofting Conditions.
