§ MR. PETER M'DONALD (Sligo, N.)
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, Whether the Admiralty, in May 1882, leased a piece of ground at Enniscrone for the purpose of erecting a Coastguard Station there, and have since been paying rent for said site, though not yet built on; and, whether they could now commence the erection of the buildings, so as to afford employment to the people of the district?
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. E. W. DUFF) (Banffshire)
The site in question is held on lease dated 1st of May, 1882, and rent has been paid accordingly. The Admiralty have approved of the Coastguard station to be erected, and the buildings will be carried on during the present year, provided the sanction of Parliament be obtained 641 to the Vote inserted in the Civil Service Estimates by the Irish Board of Public Works, with whom the matter rests.
