HC Deb 09 March 1896 vol 38 cc421-2
MR. J. G. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, in view of the fact that the Baden Tarbet Pier, Ross-shire, has been completed for six months, will he state the cause of the delay in granting a certificate for the pier?

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

The delay has been on the part of the Piers Committee of the County Council, whose duty it is to apply for the certificate. I am informed that the Piers Committee is to meet this week to take the necessary steps.
