§ COLONEL MALCOLM (Argyllshire)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate when the decision on the schemes for piers and harbours, laid before the Secretary for Scotland by the County Councils under the West Highlands and Islands 833 (Scotland) Works Bill of last Session, will be given; and what steps are being taken with regard to them?
§ * SIR C. J. PEARSON
I have to inform my hon. and gallant Friend that the Secretary for Scotland hopes soon to be in a position to decide on the applications which have already been received, and is at present making inquiry into these applications under the power given to him by the Statute referred to.
