HC Deb 27 October 1919 vol 120 c314W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that loss and trouble is caused by the refusal of the Admiralty to remove the hurdles erected between Slestie Orphir and the east point of Gramsay, and that in special the trade of Stromness is greatly injured; and, in view of the fact that war conditions have ceased, he will confer with the Admiralty with a view of their removal.


Representations have been made to the Board of Trade by the Stromness Harbour Commissioners with regard to the hurdles in question, and the Board of Trade have been, and are, in communication with the Admiralty in the matter.
