§ MR. TIMOTHY HEALY (Louth, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland who selected the colour of the ensign for the Irish Fishery Department which has recently been adopted; are there any letters or minutes respecting the colour of the flag; and by whose order was it settled that no portion of the flag should be green?
§ *THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. W. L. JACKSON, Leeds, N.)
The Inspectors of Irish Fisheries are all absent from Dublin on duty in the country. I learn by telegraph that the question of the flag has not yet been submitted to the newly-constituted Board.
§ *MR. JACKSON
I have no knowledge on the subject. As I have said, the Inspectors are away, and I can only give the House such information as I have received.
