HC Deb 10 April 1963 vol 675 c162W
77. Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what consideration he has given to the proposals for a ferry service between Stornoway and Ullapool; what public expenditure this would involve in respect of landing and servicing facilities at the termini; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Leburn

My right hon. Friend has had no approach about such a proposal since March, 1962, when the promoters were told that, in the circumstances then prevailing, there was no prospect of Government assistance.
