§ MR. P. M'DONALD (Sligo, N.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Pullendiva Pier, Dromore West, is still unfinished, though the grant for its erection was made in 1880; and, if so, whether it is intended to issue a further specification for its completion, as the original plan, though duly carried out by the contractor, has been found totally inadequate for the requirements of the fishermen of the district?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Sir MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH) (Bristol, W.)
These works were only carried out by the contractor in accordance with the original plan, and were handed over as finished to the care of the Grand Jury. I am informed that further works were applied for under the Sea Fisheries Act of 1883; but the Commissioners of Public Works were unable to comply with the application. The matter is rather one for the Treasury than for me.
