HC Deb 02 March 1966 vol 725 cc288-9W
54. Mr. George Y. Mackie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if the Burn of Durran drainage scheme in Caithness, about which there had been a dispute involving his Department, has now been satisfactorily completed; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ross

I am informed that this scheme has been satisfactorily completed in accordance with the agreement entered into by the five proprietors concerned and my Department as drainage contractor. Four of the proprietors have not met their share of the cost and arrangements are being made for recovery.
