asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether, in the plans for making the Oban—Fort William Road via Ballachuilish a trunk road, there has been included a bridge across the Ballachuilish Narrows; and whether, in view of the convenience and amenity it would provide, he will consider proceeding with such a bridge at an early date.

The whole of the route between Oban and Fort William is already a trunk road. The building of a bridge across the Ballachuilish Narrows has been considered, but its cost would be high and I do not think I could justify it at present.
