§ MAJOR TRENCH
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether, having regard to the urgency of the case, he will, on the earliest opportunity, bring in a Bill for improving the Drainage and Navigation of the River Shannon, and enabling those interested in the former to co-operate with the Government in effecting this purpose?
THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER,
in reply, said, as to the navigation of the River Shannon, he was not aware that anything was required to be done. As far as the drainage went, he had considered the question very carefully, and he was sorry to say he did not think it advisable to introduce a Bill on the subject.
