§ MR. M'CARTHY DOWNING
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether any plans likely to be practicable have been proposed for the removal of Daunt's Rock, off Cork Harbour; and, if further trials are thought desirable, whether the Government will carry them out during the present summer weather; and, whether any Report has been furnished of the trials already made, and to what effect?
MR. GATHORNE HARDY
, in reply, said, that Questions respecting "Daunt's Rock," off Cork Harbour, ought to be addressed to the Board of Trade rather than to the War Office. He did not think it was in the power of anybody to state at present whether any plans likely to be practicable had been proposed for the removal of the rock. A Report, made by the officials engaged in the experiments was now under the consideration of the Board of Trade, and that Department would probably be able in the course of a few days to give an answer to the hon. Gentleman.
