§ 35. Mr. CASSELLS
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has been in consultation with the county council of Dumbarton relative to the suggested road improvement scheme for highways bordering Loch Lomond; and, if so, what is the result of these negotiations?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
I understand that the present proposal of the county council is to carry out, subject to grant from the Road Fund, a comprehensive survey of the whole length of this road from Balloch to the Perthshire boundary as a preliminary to the preparation of an improvement scheme.
§ Mr. CASSELLS
Is the right hon. Gentleman prepared to give the scheme preferential treatment and consideration in view of the fact that the development of Loch Lomond would be a national asset?
