§ Mr. Ross
No, I do not think that it would be possible to make any estimate of the kind the right hon. Gentleman suggests. It would be much better to take the whole matter in the round. He should bear in mind that in the Budget certain announcements about Selective Employment Tax in respect of hotels in rural areas were made, which should be put on the other side of the balance.
§ Mr. Maclennan
Will my right hon. Friend consider making available the figures for the kind of assistance that is available within the seven crofting counties through Board of Trade grants, and through the Highlands and Islands Development Board's schemes?
§ Mr. Wolrige-Gordon
If, as in the case of agriculture, the Government are not able to make these estimates of cost, is not there an argument for exempting the Highlands from the effects of the Transport Bill until the costs are estimated?
