SIR THOMAS LEA (Londonderry, S.)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade what was the first cost of the installation of the electric light at St. Catherine's Point Lighthouse, including cost of buildings; and what is the annual cost of maintenance?


The first cost of converting to an electric light the oil light at St. Catherine's Point, including cost of such additional buildings as were required, was £12,767 2s. 4d., and the average annual cost of maintenance of the converted station during the last three years is £1,155 8s. 3d.
