§ MR. O'SULLIVAN
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, What steps, if any, have been taken in pursuance of his promise to afford the din fishermen a passage to the important salmon fishing berth on the adjacent beach, where these men will be employed during the fishing season?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
Sir, I made the inquiries which I promised in this case, both at the office of Inspectors of Fisheries and the office of the Board of Works; but the result did not show any way in which the Government could satisfactorily intervene directly. The dispute as to a right of way is very unfortunate; but it is clearly not a matter as to which the Government could interfere. I have placed the matter before the Fishery Piers Commission, who have the administration of the fund provided by the Act of last Session, and I hope that they may be able to carry out such alteration of the pier or its approaches as will remove the existing difficulty.
