§ Mr. MacCormick
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has completed his consideration of the area to be covered by the Highlands and Islands Development Board; and if he will now 52W make an order placing the island of Bute in the area covered by the board.
§ Mr. William Ross
No. I wish to know the views of local authorities first, and my Department will shortly be asking the appropriate newly-elected bodies for their views.
