HC Deb 04 April 1892 vol 3 cc566-7
MR. COLLERY (Sligo, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Congested Districts Board have received a resolution passed at a public meeting held in Sligo, and also one by the Grand Jury of the county, recommending among other things the establishment of a fish-curing station at Malaghmore, where a breakwater erected by the late Lord Palmerston exists; if the Congested Districts Board Inspectors have visited any portion of the county of Sligo, which has a coast line of about 60 miles, most of which has been scheduled under the Act; if he is aware that most of the scheduled district contains a very poor population, who live mainly by fishing, and that no fishery pier of any kind exists along the coast; and if he will use his influence with the Board to put the Act in practical operation in the county of Sligo?


(who replied) said: The Congested Districts Board have received copies of the Resolutions referred to, and the recommendations made at the meeting mentioned shall be carefully considered by the Board. Local inquiries have been directed by the Board, who now await the necessary Reports.
