HC Deb 05 June 1951 vol 488 cc792-3
17. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what decision he has come to about the provision of the new harbour for Maidens, Ayrshire.

Mr. T. Fraser

This case is still under consideration. In recent discussions, representatives of the county council agreed to reconsider their contribution towards the cost.

Mr. Hughes

How long has this matter been under discussion? Is there any prospect of it materialising into something definite?

Mr. Fraser

The discussions have gone on for a long time, and different schemes have been considered from time to time. The present scheme is one that we think should be carried out as soon as possible. It is only a question of adjusting with the county council what contribution they are to make, and then for the Development Commissioners to make up their minds whether they can support it.
