§ Mr. MACLEAN
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many applications have been received from local authorities and harbour authorities for assistance to rebuild or repair defective harbours and breakwaters; what is the total value of such applications; how many have been granted; and what is their value?
The number of applications received for assistance from the Development Fund or the Fishery Board for Scotland to harbour and breakwater schemes in Great Britain during the last two years was thirteen. The total value of the applications cannot be stated, as no definite sum was asked for in most cases. Assistance has been promised in eight cases, at a cost of £34,000. These figures omit cases still under consideration.
