§ MR. WEIR
To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will say whether the petition of the Avoch Harbour Trustees, praying for a grant in aid of works in connection with the Harbour at Avoch, Ross-shire, has yet received consideration; and, if so, will he state the nature of the decision arrived at.
(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) The petition of the Avoch Harbour Trustees was referred to the Harbour Grants Committee, who have made a Report which is under the consideration of the Government. I have no doubt that the decision will be communicated to the applicants at an early date.
