asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps are being taken for the repair of the harbour at The Maidens, Ayrshire.

Ayr County Council are considering a request from the local fishermen's association that they should take over the harbour, and to assist them in coming to a decision my Department have supplied them with a report Upon it. In the meantime the question of repairs must lie over.

In view of the fact that fishermen are suffering under a very serious handicap owing to the derelict state of the harbour, will my right hon. Friend give the matter his very sympathetic consideration when it comes his way?
