§ SIR THOMAS ESMONDE (Dublin Co., S.)
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, If the loose gravel on the East Pier of Kingstown can be removed so as to make it suitable for a promenade?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)
(who replied) said, that the pier was in charge of the Board of Works, who informed him that they were not aware that there was any loose gravel on the pier. There was, however, a store of small gravel about 30 yards long and three yards broad, which was absolutely necessary for the purpose of making concrete to repair the sea slope. This did not interfere with the use of the pier as a promenade.
