Road Works, Lanarkshire
Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland
Mr John Timmons (Bothwell)
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make more money available to Lanark county for road work and absorb many of the unemployed men now signing the unemployed register.
Hon. John Maclay (Renfrewshire West)
Yes, Sir. I hope shortly to increase the grant allocated to Lanarkshire County Council for road maintenance work this year and it may be possible to bring forward some schemes of major improvement which would otherwise have had to wait a few years.
