I think that we have plenty of time. Following a discussion that we had earlier on this matter—and I was grateful to both counties that they were willing to agree to a 75 per cent. grant and not demand anything higher—this matter, along with 33 other proposals—and I should not like to go into the priority of them—has been referred to the Highlands and Islands Development Board, which, after all, only began late last year. After the Board has made its recommendations, they will go to the Scottish Economic Planning Council, of which my right hon. Friend is Chairman.
