HC Deb 22 March 1894 vol 22 c860

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that the Rules and Regulations governing the management of the Invergorden Ferry are disregarded by the lessee; that passengers using the present ferry boat incur great inconvenience and risk; and that the landing piers are in a dangerous condition; and whether it is proposed, in the forthcoming Local Government Bill for Scotland, to provide that this and other ferries, as well as piers, in the Highlands, now in the bands of private individuals, shall be placed under the control of the County Councils?


I have not received any representation in regard to the management of Invergordon Ferry referred to by the hon. Member. I propose to deal with the regulation of ferries in the Local Government Amendment Bill.
