§ Mr. Maclennan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the road and path improvement schemes which the Countryside Commission for Scotland has approved for financial assistance in the current financial year in the seven crofting counties.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
Road improvement schemes are assisted under the Countryside (Scotland) Act 1967 in country parks only, and there are so far no such parks in the crofting counties. On the recommendation of the commission I have, however, offered grant in the current financial year on the following path improvement schemes:
County Council Improvement Amount of Grant £ Inverness Ben Nevis footpath 1,275 Lairig Ghru footpath 150 Ross and Cromarty. Rosemarkie-Navity coastal footpath. 144 Stornoway Harbour footpath. 1,143 Zetland Knabb-Twagoes footpath 737 Sletts-Clickimin footpath 754
