HC Deb 04 December 1951 vol 494 c2205
28. Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether Ross and Cromarty County Council have yet found a contractor to undertake the construction of the new pier at Portnaguran, Isle of Lewis; when this work is to begin; and, if contractors have not yet been engaged, whether he will make a statement on the prospect of an early start with this scheme.

Mr. J. Stuart

I am informed that the county council are about to call for tenders for the work.

Mr. MacMillan

May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he is aware that all of us who are concerned with this project are extremely glad that it has the blessing of an Order confirmed by the late Secretary of State for Scotland, after waiting for nine years for the Tories to do something?
