HC Deb 26 February 1903 vol 118 c930

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether Mr. William Shield, who was deputed to report on the condition of the harbour at Port Ness, Island of Ness, has yet made a report; and, if so, will he state what steps are proposed to clear the harbour of sand, and render it of service to persons engaged in the fishing industry.


Yes, Sir; a report from Mr. Shield has been received and has been under consideration. The Secretary for Scotland thought it necessary to ask for further information on some of the points dealt within the report, and when this has been received the report will be made public.
