§ Mr. Macdonald
The consultation period on the Government's proposed framework for the appraisal of trunk road investment in Scotland ended on 16 October 1998. The responses have now been analysed and some useful suggestions from respondents incorporated into the appraisal framework. The outcome of the review will be announced as soon as is practicable. From 1 July 1999 this will be a matter for the Scottish Parliament.
