HC Deb 20 November 1946 vol 430 cc133-4W
129. Captain MacLeod

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty why four rafts, which have been lying at Fortrose Harbour for a considerable time, were broken up with crowbars and pickaxes after an offer made by the town council of Fortrose to purchase these rafts had been rejected.

Mr. Dugdale

These rafts contained timber in excellent condition and in sizes suitable for jetty repairs, and it was decided in view of the timber shortage to dismantle them and transfer the material to Invergordon for use at the naval base.
