Question S1W-4480

To ask the Scottish Executive what was the total expenditure in the last financial year on trunk roads in Argyll and Bute, and whether it will make representations to Her Majesty's Government to detail the total income in the last financial year from road users in Argyll and Bute in order that a comparison can be made between the average income and expenditure per motorist in this area in the last financial year and between expenditure and income in percentage terms.

Expenditure on trunk roads in Argyll and Bute in 1998-99 was approximately £3.9 million. Any comparison of average income and expenditure per motorist in Argyll and Bute would have to take account of all roads, ferry and other transport expenditure inside and outside of the area of benefit to Argyll and Bute motorists and would also require the disaggregation of all tax raised by place of residence. Such a calculation, if practicable, could only be undertaken at disproportionate cost.
