§ MR. W. REDMOND (for Mr. FIELD,) Dublin, St. Patrick
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Congested Districts Board (Ireland) have had under consideration any scheme for the erection of a suitable pier in connection with the Baltimore Railway; and, if so, whether they have come to any decision on the matter; and whether any surplus remains of the sum granted by the Treasury for the construction of the Baltimore Extension Railway; and, if so, whether he will take steps to secure that such surplus shall be used to aid in the erection of the pier?
§ SIR J. T. HIBBERT
The Chief Secretary informs me that the Congested Districts Board have had under consideration a proposal for the extension of the pier at Baltimore in connection with the railway, but have not yet come to any decision on the matter. I am informed that there is no surplus under the Light Railways Act of 1889, and, even if there were, it would not be applicable to the erection of a pier.
