HC Deb 02 September 1895 vol 36 c1442
MR. J. E. B. BAILLIE (Inverness)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, whether during the Recess Her Majesty's Government will inquire into the whole question of promoting a system of Light Railways on the West Coast of the Highlands of Scotland, and will obtain such local information on the subject as will best bring out the particular claims of the various districts of the country for the development of their natural resources; and whether, in particular, he will undertake to investigate the merits of the proposal to build a Light Railway in the Island of Skye, from Kyleakin by Broadford to Portree and Dunveggan?


The Secretary for Scotland fully recognises the importance of the subject raised in this question, and he purposes to look into the matter and give it his careful attention and consideration.
