§ Mr. Russell Johnston
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether details of the way in which the £75,000 grant for tourist research, announced by him on32W
in 1965; and what proportion of each category was cleared up.
§ Mr. Ross
In accordance with the normal conditions applying to a grant-in-aid of this kind the expenditure will not be accounted for in detail to Parliament, but the relative books and accounts wil be open to inspection by the Comptroller and Auditor General.
I expect, however, that the Scottish Tourist Board will itself announce the initiation of projects, as appropriate. The Chairman made the first such announcement on 4th May.
