HC Deb 27 October 1908 vol 195 c52
MR. CATHCART WASON (Orkney and Shetland)

To ask the Secretary for Scotland whether, in view of the fact that the estimated cost of a harbour or breakwater at Fair Isle has been considered prohibitive, inquiry will be made if it would be possible, by arrangement with the Northern Lights Commissioners, to strengthen and extend the lighthouse jetty.

(Answered by Mr. Sinclair.) The islanders approached the Northern Lights Commissioners in December, 1907, and have been informed that on their furnishing plans, specifications, and estimates the question will be considered.
