§ 6. Sir WILLIAM COTTS
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether be will take immediate steps to prevent the closing down of the coastguard station at the Butt of Lewis, owing to the protection it affords the fishing grounds from illegal trawling and the convenience to shipping generally?
§ Viscount WOLMER
It is very doubtful whether there is sufficient reason for maintaining the coastguard station at the Butt of Lewis for coast-watching and lifesaving purposes, but 230 further inquiry is being made, and I will inform the hon. Baronet of the decision arrived at.
