§ Mr. CHARLES DUNCAN
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any complaints have been made as to the position of the light at the south end of Walney Island, Morecambe Bay, and whether some steps will be taken to provide a fog signal there, in order to increase its general efficiency and thus reduce the danger now experienced in foggy weather to the numerous steamers engaged in the fishing and passenger traffic at the ports of Fleetwood, Barrow-in-Furness, and Heysham?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. H. J. Tennant)
I have not received any complaints of the nature referred to by my hon. Friend. The light is a local light under the jurisdiction of the Port of Lancaster Commissioners, and the Board of Trade are communicating with that body and the Trinity House in regard to the latter part of the question. I shall be happy to inform my hon. Friend of the result of the communications.
