HC Deb 12 April 1888 vol 324 c1067

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, If the Government intend to take early steps to give effect to the recommendations of their Royal Commission regarding railways or deep sea fishery harbours in Ireland?

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

I answered a similar Question on the 23rd of last month. I am sorry to say the Government have not yet been able to arrive at any decision in the matter other than that which I expressed on that occasion—namely, that sufficient time has not yet been allowed for the purpose.
