HC Deb 19 October 1944 vol 403 c2555W
Mr. M. Macmillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when the works on the pier at Castlebay will have been completed and the pier made available for full use again; if he will state the full cost of the works undertaken; and how much money was collected as a result of the present ferry system from passengers to and from Castlebay to date.

Mr. Johnston

I am informed that the pier will probably be re-opened for traffic early next month and that the whole work is expected to be finished by the autumn of next year. The estimated cost of the work is £42,000. I have asked the local authority for particulars of the amount collected from the temporary ferry service and I will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as their reply is received.
