§ Mr. AINSWORTH
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he can give the House any information as to the loss of the "Vivid," which was stranded near Colonsay on Tuesday last?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
The Royal Technical College of Glasgow Cadet Ship "Vivid" stranded on a reef to the South of Colonsay in the early morning of Tuesday, 8th July. The Fishery Cruiser "Minna," which was cruising towards Colonsay rendered every assistance possible, and took her crew on board. She endeavoured to tow the "Vivid" into shallow water, but was unable to save her, and she sank in six fathoms of water.
