HC Deb 26 January 1982 vol 16 cc342-3W
Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will ask the Scottish Development Department to carry out a study into the feasibility of a street lighting scheme being installed on the trunk road on both approaches to Ashkirk; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Younger

It is not my Department's general policy to provide lighting on trunk roads in rural areas. However, I have asked the Department's road engineers to examine the need for a road lighting scheme on the A7 at Ashkirk and I shall write further to the right hon. Member when I have their report.
