HC Deb 08 July 1902 vol 110 cc1085-6

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, in view of the fact that the Government have decided to provide £100,000 for the construction of piers and harbours required in congested districts of Ireland, will he say whether similar arrangements can be made to meet the requirements of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, with a view to the construction of harbours of a size suitable for the larger boats now requisite for the line-fishing industry.


This is not a question to which the principle of the equivalent grant is applicable. Each case must be dealt with on its merits. Cases are considered by the Treasury.
