HC Deb 20 July 1863 vol 172 cc1057-8

said, he would beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade, Whether his attention has been called to the necessity of providing some better means than now exist of protecting vessels on their voyage to and from America, from the danger arising from the position of Daunt's Rock, some miles off the entrance to Cork Harbour; and whether he has taken any steps in consequence?


said, in reply, that the representation made to the Board of Trade through the hon. Member, with reference to the necessity for some new beacon or means of warning to ships upon this dangerous rock, was still under consideration.
