HC Deb 17 February 1898 vol 53 c862
MR. D. N. NICOL (Argyll)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, considering that the Board of Trade have long since sanctioned the lighthouse authorities' decision upon the light-keepers' petition for a rise of pay, and seeing that the Trinity Board have made known this decision to the English keepers, some time ago, would he state the reason why the Northern Lighthouse Board, of which he is a member, have not yet intimated their decision to their light-keepers?


The decision of the Board of Trade was only communicated to the Northern Lighthouse Commissioners on 31st December last, and considerable correspondence has since passed with a view to clear up some points of detail, but the General Order embodying the scheme has now been issued.
