§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether his attention has been drawn to the dangerous condition of the road to the Druidical stones at Callernish, Island of Lewis; and whether these stones and the approaches thereto are claimed by the Crown under the Ancient Monuments Act; and, if so, whether steps will be taken to put the road in a proper state of repair?
§ MR. SHAW-LEFEVRE
The stones of Callernish are an ancient monument under the care of the Commissioners of Works. The approach to them appears to be a public footpath loading to other places; but I am advised that I should not be justified in relieving the Local Authorities of the cost of maintaining this footpath.
