§ MR. A. O'CONNOR (Donegal, E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he will direct the Board of Works, or cause the Railway Company, to remove the obstruction erected by the railway in the Little Brosna River, which now prevents the drainage of the Shinrone drainage district; and whether there are any means of compensating the 409 riparian owners and occupiers for the damage resulting from the obstruction?
§ *SIR H. MAXWELL
We have no powers to compel the Railway Company to do as the hon. Member requires, and the riparian owners and others have their remedy at law for any damage caused.
