HC Deb 25 June 1931 vol 254 c624
82. Mr. McKINLAY

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state what were the Terms of the case granted by his Department of part of the foreshore at Weston-super-Mare to a private company for the purpose of erecting a pier pavilion?


I assume that the question refers to the Weston-super-Mare Grand Pier Company Limited. No lease has been granted for the purpose stated, but conveyances were granted in 1900 and 1906 in respect of the foreshore, etc., occupied by pillars and supports of the pier to be constructed under the Weston-super-Mare Grand Pier Act, 1897, and of a landing stage proposed to-be erected by the Company. The conveyances were in the usual terms, of which I am sending my hon. Friend an abstract.
