HC Deb 11 November 1952 vol 507 cc18-9W
59. Major Anstruther-Gray

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether his engineers have now reached agreement with the Eyemouth Harbour Trustees as to the proposed scheme for deepening Eyemouth Harbour.

Mr. Henderson Stewart

The Eye-mouth Harbour Trustees were asked to consider a sluicing system for dealing with the silting at the harbour, and a report on a recent inspection of the sandbank has also been sent to them. My right hon. Friend will be glad to examine any proposals they may make.
