To ask the Secretary for Scotland if he will state on what date in April last the harbour at Balintore, Ross-shire, was inspected; is the officer employed attached to the permanent staff of the Board; and, if so, under what title is he designated in the Estimates.
(Answered by MR. Sinclair.) The harbour was inspected this year by order of the Board by one of its officers. It is not usual to lay responsibility publicly upon a permanent official which properly lies with the Board.
