HC Deb 14 April 1905 vol 145 c202

To ask the Lord-Advocate, having regard to the fact that the harbour and breakwater at Port Ness, Island of Lewis, were constructed from plans prepared by Messrs. D. and T. Stevenson, and that the harbour, although comparatively new, is now in such a condition as not to warrant the expenditure requisite to render it of service to the fishermen, will the Scottish Office consider the expediency of employing some other firm of civil engineers when again requiring professional assistance.

(Answered by Mr. Scott Dickson.) The only assurance I can give is that the Secretary for Scotland will endeavour to secure the most efficient professional assistance when occasion arises.
