HC Deb 26 April 1906 vol 156 c33

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland if he will state the cause of the delay in finding a site for a new burial ground in place of that at Balinakill, in the parish of Uig, island of Lewis, which has been repeatedly reported to be overcrowded, and the coffins only covered with a few inches of earth.


The proprietor has agreed to enlarge and otherwise put the burial ground at Balinakill into proper condition, and the work is to be commenced during the course of the spring. The delay appears to have been caused by the negotiations.
