HC Deb 13 November 1888 vol 330 cc1032-3
MR. LANE (Cork Co., E.)

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether he has yet received a Report from Mr. J. Wolfe Barry on the condition of Ballycotton Pier; and, whether he has any objection to place a copy of the correspondence which has taken place between the Grand Jury of the County of Cork and the Board of Works, between the Rev. M. P. Norris, C.C., of Ballycotton, and the Board of Works, and between the Board of Works and the Treasury, in reference to this pier, upon the Table of the House, before the Estimates for the Irish Board of Works are submitted to Parliament?


I have not yet received Mr. Barry's Report. As regards the correspondence, my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer has pointed out the inconvenience of giving inter-Departmental correspondence; and the purport of the remainder is pretty well known through the medium of the public Press.
