MR. CATHCART WASON (Orkney and Shetland)

To ask the Lord Advocate if his attention has been directed to the petition from the County of Zetland and Burgh of Lerwick praying for increased facilities of communication; and if the Congested Districts Board will come to the assistance of the petitioners.

(Answer.) The attention of the Secretary for Scotland has been called to the memorial referred to by the honourable Member, but his Lordship cannot recommend the Congested Districts Board to commence a policy of giving subsidies of such amount as is involved in carrying out the suggestions made in the memorial.—(Scottish Office.)
