§ MR. P. J. POWER (Waterford, E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, considering that there is no accommodation for fishermen at Tramore, County Waterford, and that the pier, partly built by local contribution, which has been destroyed, was planned and constructed by the Board of Works, what assistance may the locality expect from funds at the disposal of the Irish Government in an effort to provide suitable accommodation for the fishermen of Tramore?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. JACKSON,) Leeds, N.
It is estimated that there will be a balance from these funds, but at present there is no realised balance. I am afraid that 1071 there may be charges on the funds which will leave nothing available for the accommodation of the fishermen at Tramore. I have made inquiries, and I certainly cannot find at the disposal of the Irish Government any funds for such a purpose.
