HC Deb 07 August 1894 vol 28 c240
MR. DANE (Fermanagh, N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether any, and if so, what steps have been taken respecting the promised deep water pier at Killybegs, County Donegal; and when it is probable that the works in connection with it will be completed?


I am afraid that I can only answer that this matter is still under consideration of the Congested Districts Board and the Board of Works. With regard to the position of the latter Board, there are legal difficulties which are now being referred for the opinion of the Law Officers.

MR. MAC NEILL (Donegal, S.)

When may we reasonably hope the consideration of this matter will come to an end? This consideration was promised by my right hon. Friend last September 12 months.


I am as anxious as anyone that this matter should come to an end. But there are paramount difficulties, and we cannot set to work until they are overcome.
