HC Deb 19 July 1909 vol 8 c30

asked the President of the Board of Trade, in view of the fact that a Provisional Order for the construction of the Cromarty and Dingwall Railway was obtained several years since, and that the Highland Railway Company on the 3rd July last signified their intention not to proceed with the construction of the line, will he state when the promoters proposed to commence this long-delayed railway; and when will the Provisional Order expire?

The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. H. J. Tennant) (for Mr. Churchill)

I have communicated with the Light Railway Company, and have received a reply from the chairman, of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy. The powers to construct this line will expire, unless again extended, in August, 1911.
