HC Deb 08 March 1938 vol 332 c1694
19. Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is now the position regarding the approved project for a pier at Portnaguran, Isle of Lewis?

Mr. Elliot

A proposal by the County Council of Ross and Cromarty to construct a pier at Portnaguran with the aid of a grant from public funds is under discussion. I understand that the question of providing an adequate local contribution is at present being investigated by the county council.

Mr. MacMillan

In view of the fact that this matter has been discussed for nearly half a century—certainly for over 40 years—will the right hon. Gentleman do the best he can to expedite the matter?
