HC Deb 13 August 1878 vol 242 c1870

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, If it is the intention of the Government to act upon the recommendations contained in the Report of the Parliamentary Committee appointed to inquire into the conduct of the Board of Works this Session; if not, if they would issue instructions to the Board of Works not to collect any further half-yearly instalments which may become due by the Galway Mills until it is ascertained what amount of relief they are entitled to?


As I have once before stated, I can hardly, without more fully considering the Report than I have been able to do, in consequence of the pressure of Parliamentary Business, state what action the Government would take upon this Report. The Government will at the earliest day possible take that Report into careful consideration. It would not be right, however, to prejudge the case by making any order with regard to the Galway Mills, which is only one of several cases referred to.
