HC Deb 26 March 1885 vol 296 cc669-70

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, What was the amount of the engineer's estimate for Culdaff Pier, county Donegal; how has the money been provided; what is the amount of the contract for them; when will the works commence, and within what time is the contractor bound to complete them; and, is the contractor the same as the one who built the Downies Bay Pier?


The gross estimate for this pier was £4,000, of which £3,688 was for works. Towards this sum £3,500 was provided by grant and £250 by loan from the Sea Fisheries Fund, whilst £250 has been contributed locally. The amount of the contract was £2,349. The contractors are bound to commence the works at once, and to complete them on or before the 1st of November next. They are the same contractors as at Downies.
