asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is satisfied with the progress that is being made with plans to provide water supplies to rural areas in Ross and Cromarty.

Mr. McNeil:

Satisfactory progress is being made within the available resources with the schemes at present in progress. While there were difficulties at an earlier stage with the planning of the additional schemes yet to be undertaken, this work also is now proceeding satisfactorily.

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, certainly in Ross-shire, people feel that these schemes are going forward very slowly indeed? I hope that he will look very carefully into the difficulties he talked about to see that they are overcome.
