HC Deb 17 December 1968 vol 775 cc369-70W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when the Highlands and Islands Development Board is to start building its hotels in the Islands of Barra and Harris; what sites have been chosen; and what accommodation each of them will have.

Mr. Ross

The Highlands and Islands Development Board hopes to make a start on the hotel on Barra during 1970-71, and on the Harris hotel later. It has inspected several possible sites on both Barra and Harris, but a final selection has not yet been made. No decision has yet been taken on the accommodation to be provided in these hotels.
