§ Mr. Charles Kennedy
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if the(a) draft Toll Order for the Skye Bridge and (b) draft Assignation Statement were placed in the Library in 1991; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Macdonald
[holding answer 10 December 1998]: A draft of the Order and the Assignation Statement were not placed in the Library. The Order was not subject to parliamentary procedure but the proposal to make the Order was advertised and a draft of the Order was available for inspection in accordance with the required procedures under the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984. There was no draft Statement. The procedures in the 1984 Act require the Assignation Statement itself to be made available for inspection with the draft Order and this was done.
