HC Deb 18 July 1969 vol 787 c218W
Mr. Russell Johnston

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is satisfied with the operation of the 24-hour ferry service provided during the week by the Caledonian Steam Packet Company from Kyle of Lochalsh to Kyleakin; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ross

The Scottish Transport Group, as new owners of the Kyle—Kyleakin ferry, are taking steps which I am satisfied will lead to a much improved service. An additional 9-car ferry will come into service next week, and the introduction of a 25–30 car vessel is planned for next year.
