HC Deb 25 February 1901 vol 89 c1046
MR. JOHN DEWAR (Inverness-shire)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether, the attention of the Secretary for Scotland has been called to the fact that the Peterspont Pier at Benbecula, constructed by the Congested Districts-Board, cannot be made use of until an access road has been formed: and, seeing that the inhabitants are too poor to pay for the construction of this road, but are willing to contribute a reasonable amount of free labour, will he state what steps are proposed to be taken to make the pier available for traffic.


On 29th December, 1900, the Congested Districts Board received from the County Council of Inverness a representation as to the access by land and sea to Peterspont Pier (which was constructed before the constitution of the Congested Districts Board). The Congested Districts Board are investigating the engineering and other questions involved, and wills come to a decision at their next meeting early in March.
