§ 98. Sir B. Neven-Spence
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has a list of piers, slips, boat repairing sheds, ice plants and other structures which have been erected by the Service Departments in Scotland and which might be of use to the fishing community; and whether he will see that these are not dismantled without consultation with the local authorities.
Yes, Sir. My Department has prepared a list of the works constructed on the Scottish coast which might be of use to the fishing community, and consultations are taking place with the Service Departments concerned with a view to ensuring that local authorities will be given an opportunity of acquiring any of these properties which become surplus to service requirements.
