asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the up-to-date timetable of the anticipated dates of completion of the unimproved road between Arisaig and Mallaig.

This length of road will be improved in four stages. On present public expenditure plans, work on the northernmost section through Mallaig is due to start in the financial year 1981–82. This will be followed in 1982–83 by the improvement of the section between Kinloid and Kinsadel. It will take about two years to complete each section. Schemes to improve the remaining two sections are in preparation but have not been allocated a place in the trunk road programme.
