HC Deb 20 February 1914 vol 58 c1290W

asked the Lord Advocate whether the Dumbartonshire County Council have completed their inquiry as to the boundaries of the lands on either side of the River Leven, the use of which was and is appurtenant to the rights of ferry at Balloch, which, with other subjects, were purchased under Section 93 of the Roads and Bridges (Scotland) Act, 1878, and are now vested in them; and whether he can state the result of the inquiry?


The matter is not one in which I have jurisdiction, but I have communicated my hon. Friend's question to the county council and have received from the county clerk a reply stating that''The county council authorities made inquiry, the result of which, even if otherwise desirable, could not, I think, be satisfactorily dealt with by question and answer. But over and above this, matters relating to the question pot down are sub judice, and it would, in my Opinion, be inexpedient at present to discuss the points raised.

He has also enclosed a print of minutes of meeting of the Rights-of-way Committee of the Western District Committee of 2nd February, 1914, which I shall be glad to show to my hon. Friend.
