§ 63. Mr. Russell Johnston
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he proposes to take either directly or through the Highlands and Islands Development Board, to reduce freight charges in the Highlands and Islands.
§ Mr. Ross
As I indicated in my reply on 25th October to the hon. Member for Perth and East Perthshire (Mr. MacArthur), I am having a study made of the level of charges for sea transport in the Highlands and Islands. I shall make a further statement on this question as soon as I can.—[Vol. 751, c.469–74.]
