HC Deb 06 March 1924 vol 170 cc1627-8W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether his attention has been called to the need for lights at the approach to Petersport Pier, in Benbecula; and whether he is now in a position to make a statement?


The reply to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I am informed that, owing to the narrowness of the passage, and the presence of numerous rocks, there is no reason to believe that the passage would be regarded by those in charge of vessels as one that could safely be navigated at night, even if lights were provided at the approach to the pier.
