§ MR. MAURICE HEALY (Cork)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether the Board of Trade have made any recommendations to the Commissioners of Irish Lights with a view to having a new lighthouse light and fog signal placed at the Old Head of Kinsale, as recommended by the Irish Chamber of Commerce, &c.; what the reply of the Commissioners of Irish Lights has been; and whether the correspondence will be published?
§ MR. MUNDELLA
No, Sir. The law requires that any recommendations that are necessary should be made by the Lighthouse Authorities to the Board of Trade, and not by the Board of Trade to the Lighthouse Authorities. The initiative in these matters of new lighthouses and fog signals rests with the Commissioners.
