§ 3. Mr. MACPHERSON
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has considered the representations made to him as to the state of dangerous disrepair of the pier at Gairloch; and if he proposes to take any action?
The SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Sir Archibald Sinclain)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, Gairloch Pier is privately-owned and therefore no assistance towards the cost of its reconstruction could be given from the monies at the disposal of the Department of Agriculture.
