HC Deb 10 March 1885 vol 295 cc623-4

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it is a fact the contractor for the Drumhariffe Bridge across the Shannon between Roscommon and Leitrim was entitled to receive monthly 90 per cent, of the money due, according as the work progressed; is he not now, under the terms of his contract, entitled to a sum of in or about £200 for work performed, in addition to other sums claimed for extra work; can he state on what grounds payments have not been made to such contractor of sums due to him; is not the bridge at present used for the purposes of transit; and, when will payment of the sums due be made?


This Question only appears on the Paper to-day, and I have not had time to make any inquiries; but, as at present advised, I do not think it is a matter in which the Government could interfere.
