asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the Scottish road programme for the five years 1962 to 1967.

Expenditure in 1962–63 will be £12 million and will increase annually to give a total of approximately £671 million over the five year period 1962–67.In my statement on 28th July, 1960, I informed the House of my plans for classified roads over the five year period 1961–66 and of my intention to double the trunk road programme in 1961–63. The classified road programme will continue in 1966–67 at about the same level but my trunk road programme over the whole period will now run at a level rather higher than I envisaged last year.
