§ Mr. Craigen
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what assistance the Countryside Commission for Scotland is providing in amenity improvements of the Forth and Clyde canal: and if these stretches of waterway alongside Possil marsh will be considered for more assistance by the Commission.
§ Mr. Ancram
The provision of grant-aid under the Countryside (Scotland) Act 1967 is a matter for decision by the Countryside Commission for Scotland without reference to me. I am therefore asking the chairman of the commission to write to the hon. Member with the information as soon as possible.
