HC Deb 17 February 1893 vol 8 cc1699-700
MR. M'GILLIGAN (Fermanagh, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the ratepayers within the area of taxation for the maintenance, &c., of the Clogher Valley Tramway, County Fermanagh, pay a levy of 7d. or 8d. in the £1 for the purposes of the tramway; and whether, in view of the strong opposition of the ratepayers to the construction of the line, he will advise the Treasury to come to their relief?


The facts are as stated in the first paragraph of the question. After making inquiry into the circumstances of the case, I am afraid I can hold out no hope of any further relief being afforded by the Treasury.
