HC Deb 06 April 1939 vol 345 cc3003-4W
Mr. MacNeill Weir

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what piers in the County of Argyll are owned by local authorities and privately owned, respectively; and what steps are now being taken to repair piers reported as dilapidated and unsafe?

Mr. Colville

Information available indicates that there are 90 piers in the County of Argyll, of which 23 are owned by local authorities. The question of repair of piers is a matter for the consideration of the local authority or other person or body in whom the work is vested and I

satisfactory but the county council did not consider it desirable to deal with either while the Caledonian Power Bill (1938), by which power was sought to divert portions of these roads, was before this House. A survey is now being made of the Invergarry-Cluanie Road.
