§ MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
To ask the Lord Advocate if he will state whether any progress has yet been made with the construction of a protecting wall for the Skigersta Pier, Island of Lewis.
(Answered by Mr. A. Graham Murray.) As the hon. Member has already been informed,† the Board extended the time†see (4) Debates, cxviii., 1541.1021 for acceptance of the grant until 14th March. On 10th March the Congested Districts Board received a letter from the promoter of the work intimating that he had secured guarantees "to a certain extent," and requesting the Board to keep the matter open until after the meeting of the Finance Committee, which he stated was to take place about the end of the month. No further communication has been received on this subject since then.
