§ MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
To ask the Secretary for Scotland, having regard to the fact that a petition, signed by nearly 200 persons resident chiefly in the Lochbroom district of Ross-shire, has been presented to the House of Commons, urging the construction of a railway between Garve and Ullapool, will he, with a view to facilitate the transit of fish to the southern markets, arrange for the necessary grant.
(Answered by Mr. Sinclair.) I cannot hold out to my hon. friend any prospect that the Government can find money for the construction of this railway.
