asked the Minister of Transport how many miles of road, comprised in the Crofter Counties Scheme, remain to be dealt with; the mileage required to be completed in individual counties; and whether he is satisfied that the work is being carried out without undue delay.

Six hundred and eighty-one miles remain to be dealt with, comprising 214 miles in Argyll, four in Caithness, 227 in Inverness, 106 in Ross and Cromarty, 126 in Sutherland and four in Orkney. The work is being carried out as quickly as economic conditions permit, and has already begun or will soon start on a further 80 miles of road.
