HC Deb 04 March 1870 vol 199 c1236

said, he wished to ask the Secretary to the Board of Trade, Whether his attention has been called to the frequent wrecks which have recently taken place along the coast of Cardiganshire, Merionethshire, and Carnarvonshire; and whether the Government or the Trinity House contemplate placing another Lightship along that coast, or altering the position of the Lightship now stationed in Cardigan Bay, so as to make the same of use to vessels bound for the Irish Channel and for ports along the above coast?


replied, that the information received by the Board of Trade was not such as to show that any additional lightship was wanted on the coast of Cardiganshire and Merionethshire. He would remind the hon. Gentleman that a lightship had been placed on the coast of Carnarvonshire at the end of November last.
