HC Deb 24 February 1896 vol 37 cc930-1
MR. J. G. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether any arrangements have been made to render Balintore Harbour available at all states of the tide; and, if not, whether it is proposed to take any steps in the matter?

THE LORD ADVOCATE (Sir CHARLES PEARSON,) Edinburgh and St. Andrew's Universities

The Harbour Works at Balintore have been completed in accordance with the plans drawn up and approved by the Trustees. The responsibilities undertaken by public bodies towards the erection of the Harbour have been discharged in full by the acknowledgment of the Trustees themselves. The plans did not include a deep water harbour, but only a fishing boat harbour. It is not proposed to take any further steps in the matter at present.
