§ 33. Mr. MACLEAN
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has considered the application made by the Glasgow Corporation transport department for sanction to proceed with the scheme of the local underground railway known as the subway; and when authority to proceed with the scheme will be given so that the railway can be modernised and employment given to unemployed workers?
§ Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM
The Corporation submitted the plans of this scheme for my approval in May last, and 2577 I have indicated to them the nature of the conditions on which I am advised such approval could properly be given with due regard for public safety. My officers have given, and will continue to give, the Corporation all the assistance within their power with a view to expediting the matter.
