§ Sir W. COTTS
asked the President of the Board of Trade the annual cost for maintaining the coastguard station at the Butt of Lewis?
§ Sir P. LLOYD-GREAME
The Butt of Lewis station was maintained by the Admiralty until 30th June, but the Board of Trade have not taken over the station and have not yet reached a final decision as to its maintenance. If the station were opened and were staffed according to the Report of the Inter-Departmental Committee on Coastguard, the annual cost excluding the maintenance of the buildings, would be approximately £520.
