§ 80. Mr. Carmichael
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will state an approximate timetable for the implementation of his proposal to declare the Gare Loch and Loch Long a Queen's Harbour, giving dates for formal objections to be received and the procedure for hearing these objections.
§ Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
Under the provisions of the Dockyard Ports Regulation Act of 1865, we intend to create a Dockyard Port for the Gare Loch, Loch Long and Loch Goil in 1967. The Act does not provide for a procedure for hearing objections. But, as I told the House in the Adjournment Debate on 12th December, we are taking great pains to ensure that all interested parties are given the opportunity to express their views.—[Vol. 738, c. 211.]
