§ MR. B. KELLY
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If he has had his attention drawn to the report of Mr. Stevenson, C.E. on the Donegal Harbour Works; whether he is aware that the local fishermen at Poolhurrin complain of the damage to their nets from rocks and stones left in 1371 the pool, and suggest remedies; whether Mr. Stevenson has stated—These requirements are all reasonable and desirable, and could be easily carried out;and, whether he will direct immediate steps to be taken with that object?
THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. JOHN MORLEY)
Mr. Stevenson makes no references to damage to nets in his Report, and no complaint upon that point has been made to the Government since 1881, when steps were taken to remove the causes of complaint. He suggested improvements in these and other works, and I believe the recommendations generally are being considered.
