HC Deb 24 July 1939 vol 350 cc1039-40W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will make a statement on the attitude and interest of his Department in the proposed causeway or viaduct at the Sound of Earshader and Bernera Island, Isle of Lewis?

Mr. Cross

No such proposal has yet been submitted to the Board of Trade, who are the managers of the Crown foreshore and bed which would be occupied by any such causeway, and are the Department in charge of the interests of navigation. Until plans are submitted to the Board, I am not in a position to make any statement.
