HC Deb 05 May 1898 vol 57 c400

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether he is aware that the Secretary for Scotland on the 3rd December, 1896, stated, in response to an application for a telegraph extension to Applecross, that the case had been noted for consideration for assistance from the grant for telegraphs, assuming that grant to be renewed, which is administered by the Secretary for Scotland; and, in view of this promise, will he refer the application to the Congested Districts Board for consideration?


I informed the honourable Member on the 22nd of last month how the application should be laid before the Congested Districts Board for their consideration.
