I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, whether provision has been made in the Estimates for proceeding with the construction of a lighthouse on the Flannan Islands during this year?
§ MR. RITCHIE
The Commissioners of Northern Lighthouses have included in their Estimates for the coming year a sum of £3,500 (out of a total of £21,985) for the erection of this lighthouse. The Estimates, which require the sanction of this Board, are under consideration.
