HC Deb 28 July 1936 vol 315 cc1321-2
80. Mr. McKIE

asked the Minister of Transport whether he can make any statement as to the ferry service at Kylesku, Sutherland; and whether it is being more efficiently and regularly worked than in previous years?

Captain HUDSON

I understand that the ferry is now operated by a private individual and no longer by the Royal Scottish Automobile Club. My right hon. Friend has received no recent representations that the service is inefficient or irregular during the summer period when the ferry is running.


In view of the inconvenience caused in previous years will the hon. and gallant Gentleman and his Department consider the question of giving a grant towards a bridge, similar to the grant given to the adjacent county council of Rosshire a year or two ago, for Dornie Ferry?

Captain HUDSON

A question was asked by my hon. Friend last year, but the project for a bridge was found to be impracticable. The responsible authority for the initiation of such a scheme is the Sutherland County Council.
