HC Deb 11 July 1890 vol 346 c1487

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the coastguards at Schull, County Cork, are compelled to give boat attendance to emergency men and policemen who reside at Castleisland; and whether it is considered part of their duties to do so; and, if not, will the boat attendance referred to be discontinued?


When no country boat is available and the immediate duties of the coastguard admit of it, on the requisition of the police for conveyance to any of the islands, it is the duty of the coastguard to give such assistance, and it has been given at Castleisland, but will not be given if country boats are available.


I had intended to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether any moneys are due to the Board of Public Works, Ireland, on the farms from which Messrs. James Leahy, Jeremiah Nugent, and Michael Donovan have been evicted at Castleisland, County Cork, and of which Mr. Thomas Henry Marmion is now in occupation; if moneys are due on them what are the amounts; and what steps have been taken, if any, to recover them; but at the request of the right hon. Gentleman I will postpone the question until Monday.
