Is the hon. Member aware that some tens of thousands of pounds were spent by the Labour Government on the main scheme to link these townships with the main county road to North Uist? Is it not a piece of imbecile extravagance to leave a road nine-tenths finished and petering out into a bog, when a little more expenditure now would finish the job and connect the right hon. Member's own tenants with the rest of the area? When is the right hon. Member going to develop his sense of stewardship to his own tenants who have been stuck on a bleak peninsula without a road for nearly 30 years?
