HC Deb 16 June 1881 vol 262 c638

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Whether the pier at Gleesk, in Kerry, will be finished on the 1st of July next, the date fixed for the completion of the contract; and, if not, whether the contractor will be liable to any penalties?


I am sorry to say that Gleesk Pier will not be finished by the contract date, the 1st of July. The contractor has twice recently been urged by the Board of Works to make greater progress. He is liable under the contract to a penalty of £5 a day.
