HC Deb 27 March 1968 vol 761 c297W
Mr. Malcolm Macmillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what provision is being made for the shelter and handling of fishing boats at Brevig, Isle of Lewis, in view of the abandonment by Ross and Cromarty County Council of the jetty scheme after consultation with his Department.

Mr. Ross

Since the scheme for a jetty at Brevig was abandoned in 1966, I have received no application for assistance there, as the County Council decided last year not to pursue an alternative suggestion for the provision of a winch. I understand that no fishing boats now operate from Brevig.
