§ MR. M'CARTAN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, with reference to the Light Railways (Ireland) Bill, whether his attention has been directed to the necessity for a railway from Ardglass, the great centre of herring fishing in Ulster, to Downpatrick, which is recommended in the Report of the Royal Commission on Irish Railways, 1888, page 24; and whether, in view of the importance of fostering the fishing industry there, as will be seen by the Report of the Inspectors of the Irish Fisheries for 1887, he will consider the claims of that district in his proposed legislation on the above subject?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I have already given as full an answer to this question as is at the present time practicable in my reply to the question on the subject put by the hon. Member for Belfast, South (Mr. Johnston), on Friday last.
