asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proportion in money terms, of the Scottish road projects which had been due to start in the six months August, 1965, to January, 1966, is represented by the nine trunk road schemes being deferred.
The two Ayrshire schemes mentioned in the reply to a Question by the hon. Member for Glasgow, Cathcart (Mr. Edward M. Taylor) on the 29th October have been released from deferment as a result of the designation of the Ayr development district. The remaining seven deferred schemes represent 2·6 per cent. of the value of the trunk road schemes due to be started.
