§ MR. LENG (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether any opinion has been received from the Law Officers of the Crown in Scotland, relative to the public rights on the foreshore of Barry Links; whether the Memorial from the Commissioners of Carnoustie, respecting the danger to the lieges from artillery practice, has beer considered; and what decision has beer arrived at with regard to the same?
§ *THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. CAMPBELL - BANNERMAN,) Stirling, &c.
The opinion of the Lord Advocate has been received. It is to the effect that the War Department has power to make bye-laws to regulate the use by the public of the foreshore on Barry Links. The Memorial from the Commissioners of Carnoustie has been considered, and it has been found that no new situation as regards foreshores has been created by the recent purchase, seeing that artillery fire across them has gone on for several years past. Bye-laws will be made.
