HC Deb 23 June 1971 vol 819 cc281-2W
41. Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the amount of the present programme of roads for the crofting counties.

Mr. Younger

During 1970–71, Government expenditure on the road programme in the crofting counties, including the township road programme, amounted to £4.17 million. I estimate that it will amount to almost £5.13 million in the current financial year.
