HC Deb 06 December 1967 vol 755 c301W
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.]
