HC Deb 16 March 1896 vol 38 c997

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, (1) if he will state what sum was provided by the Government towards the construction of Broadford Pier, Isle of Skye; (2) whether he is aware that the income from pier dues (passengers and goods) amounted last year to £450; and, (3) whether he can state what becomes of this income, and to whom accounts are rendered?


The sum provided was £7,875. In reply to the last two paragraphs I have no doubt the amount of income last year will appear in the accounts, which by Section 41 of the Provisional Order relating to this pier, are supplied to the Sheriff-Clerk of the county, and also to the Board of Trade.
