HC Deb 24 March 1892 vol 2 c1665
MR. P. O'BRIEN (Monaghan, N.)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the Government would be willing to lease to a private firm of shipbuilders the unused docks and other premises at Haulbowline, Cork?


The expenditure which has been incurred in building and constructing the docks at Haulbowline was sanctioned on grounds of public policy, and it cannot now be diverted towards securing or promoting profits of private enterprise.
