HC Deb 01 May 1891 vol 352 c1853

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury what is the amount which he proposed to expend in improving the harbour at Donaghadee; and whether, in the public interest, the work will be proceeded with notwithstanding the protest made by a local gentleman as to the insufficiency of the work proposed to be done?


I am not able to answer the question as to the amount proposed to be expended in dredging the harbour of Donaghadee. I stated on a former occasion that the Treasury could not sanction the proposed expenditure, because it was considered to be much more than was necessary for such a work.
