HC Deb 06 March 1903 vol 119 c5

(Caithness-shire): To ask the Lord Advocate, as representing the Secretary for Scotland, whether the Congested Districts Board have received an application to declare the parish of Halkirk, Caithness, a congested district; and, if so, what decision they have come to in the matter.

(Answered by Mr. A. Graham Murray.) The Parish Council of Halkirk, at the end of last year, applied to the Congested Districts Board asking that a portion of the parish should be declared a congested district. The Congested Districts Board, in reply, has asked for the information necessary to enable them to come to a decision, hut no answer has as yet been received by the Board.
