§ 7. Mr. BROMLEY
asked the President of the Board of Trade what were the amounts received by the Commissioners and Trustees of the Port of Lancaster in respect of light duties levied on ships loading and unloading in Barrow-in-Furness harbour for the years 1911, 1912, 1913, 1914, 1919, 1920, 1921, 1922, 1923, and 1924 respectively; and how was such money expended in each of these years?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
The answer is rather long, and contains a number of figures. I will, therefore, with the hon. Member's permission, have it circulated in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Following is the answer:
§ The amounts of the light duties levied on vessels using Barrow harbour (lees the cost of collection) for the years in question, beginning with the financial year from the 1st May, 1911, to the 30th April, 1912, were as follows:—
§ As regards the last part of the question, these duties were applied by the Commissioners to the purposes prescribed in Section 19 of the Furness Railway Act, 1894. Any duties in excess of £975 per annum are by that Act transferred to the Furness Railway Company (now amalgamated with the London Midland and Scottish Railway Company).
