§ COLONEL NOLAN (Galway, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland when will Reports from the Board for the congested parts of Ireland be published; and if any steps are being taken to establish a technical school for fishery purposes in Galway?
§ *THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. W. L. JACKSON, Leeds, N.)
In the Act constituting the Congested Districts Board, that Board is required to make a Return once in every year to the Lord Lieutenant of their proceedings. The Report for 1892 will be presented in due course. The Board has this year issued a preliminary statement, which was presented to Parliament in June. Three fishing institutions have been established by the Board in the County of Galway—in the Islands of Arran and Boffin, and at Ardmore—for the purpose of imparting practical instruction to fishermen in the catching and curing of fish.
