§ MR. GILHOOLY (Cork, W.)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, If he will lay upon the Table of the House a statement of account showing amounts of receipts and expenditure in connection with the tolls of the Bantry Pier since its erection, the salary paid to each official, and the name of each official to whom such salary has been paid; if there is a fixed tariff for each vessel discharging and loading cargoes at the pier, and what the tariff is per ton; and, whether a portion of the revenue derived from the tolls will be devoted to the clearing away of the mud convenient to the pier, in order that vessels may be brought to it without difficulty?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HENRY H. FOWLER) (Wolverhampton, E.)
I beg to inform the hon. Member that the pier at Bantry was completed in 1872, and in due course handed over to the County of Cork. The Grand Jury of the County alone can supply the particulars asked for, I have, however, received copies of the telegrams, Rules, and Regulations of the pier and Schedule of the tolls, which are entirely at the hon. Member's service.
