HC Deb 11 July 1890 vol 346 c1475

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the admitted necessity for improved Fishery Harbours on the coast of Scotland, the Government will consider the advisability of devoting part of Scotland's share of the taxation specified in the Local Taxation Bill to the construction of such harbours?

*THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. H. SMITH,) Strand. Westminster

The suggestion of the hon. Member will be considered by Her Majesty's Government, together with very many other suggestions on the same subject.
