§ MR. ARTHUR O'CONNOR
I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether there is any, and, if so, how much money over and above what is appropriated for the construction of the Killybegs and Glenties lines, available for similar purposes in other parts of Donegal?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. JACKSON, Leeds, N.)
If, in addition to the agreements already made, the Glenties, Achill, and Collooney lines be constructed, the whole of the funds available under the Act of 1889 will be absorbed, and there will be no surplus for any other lines.
