§ Dr. M. S. Miller
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what stage has been reached in each of the seven compulsory purchase orders associated with the development of Glasgow Road, Blantyre; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. McElhone
Two of the orders have been the subject of statutory objections, and the council's views on these are awaited. If the objections are maintained, a public local inquiry will be necessary. In addition certain procedural points of a relatively minor nature on all seven orders are still being pursued in correspondence with the council.
