HC Deb 19 April 1978 vol 948 c151W
30. Mr. Russell Johnston

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects to be able to make a statement on compensation for damage caused by the snowstorm in the Highlands of Scotland at the end of January and beginning of February.

Mr. Millan

I have asked Scottish local authorities to let me have reports on exceptional expenditure following snow and flood damage by 28th April. Discussions are proceeding with the National Farmers' Unions about the arrangements for submitting claims on the fund which the unions are setting up. Until information from local authorities and farmers has been received and considered I am unable to add to my reply to the hon. Member for Renfrewshire, West (Mr. Buchan) on 22nd March.—[Vol. 946, c. 554–5.]
