§ Sir Hector Monro
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he hopes to let the contract for the Annan bypass on the A75; and when he will announce the line for the Carrutherstown diversion on the A75.
§ Mr. Rifkind
I expect to let the contract for the Annan bypass in September. Discussions are still proceeding on the route of the Carrutherstown to Hetland diversion, but I hope to be in a position to announce the preferred line by about the same time.
