asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many drowning accidents have occurred in the Monk-land Canal, Glasgow, during the past three years; whether arrangements have yet been completed with Glasgow Corporation regarding filling it in; and when the work will commence.

During the years 1958 to 1960 there were five drowning accidents in the part of the Monkland Canal which is within Glasgow. There have been no accidents this year. I understand that Glasgow Corporation has not reached any decision about filling the canal in.
