§ MR. MITCHELL HENRY
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether it is true, as stated in "The Galway Vindicator," that the inspectors of fisheries have long ago made their recommendations as to the distribution of the portion of the Reproductive Loan Fund set apart for the fishermen on the coast of Galway; and, whether the fund will be made available in time for the autumn fishing?
§ SIR MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH
, in reply, said, the Inspectors of Irish Fisheries began to make recommendations in May last, and had continued to do so 785 till the present time. The remainder of their recommendations would soon be forwarded to the Office of Public Works. He was informed by the Office of Public Works that a Circular would shortly be issued with reference to the distribution of the fund, and that upon the necessary forms being filled up, money would be advanced to the fishermen in a month.
