HC Deb 06 June 1924 vol 174 c1611W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether his attention has been drawn to the danger to the people crossing and recrossing between Mull and Iona, caused by the precarious condition of the boat-slip at Fionaphort, in the Ross of Mull; and whether he will have consideration given to the question of extending this boat-slip and making it safe for travellers, thereby also helping to relieve unemployment in the district?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. Any application for assistance made to the Board of Agriculture by a statutory authority having power to extend and maintain this boat-slip will be considered.
