HC Deb 18 November 1970 vol 806 c415W
81. Mr. Donald Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will approve outstanding schemes of public works in the Western Isles to relieve the unemployment situation.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

I have brought forward four improvement schemes on principal roads, costing £52,000: and work has recently started on a large road improvement scheme which will also provide more jobs. I am dealing urgently with applications for approval of other public works schemes.
