HC Deb 05 February 1952 vol 495 cc790-1
43. Mr. John MacLeod

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is now prepared to make a grant towards the proposed extension of Ullapool Pier, application for which was made in 1949.

Mr. Snadden

A revised and much more costly scheme was submitted to the Scottish Home Department last November and is now being considered.

Mr. MacLeod

Does my hon. Friend realise that the facilities there are totally inadequate and that it is in the national interest that they should be increased immediately?

Mr. Snadden

I do realise that, but this is getting very serious consideration at the present time.
