HC Deb 15 June 1894 vol 25 cc1205-6

Read a second time, and committed.


said, he supposed it would now be in Order for him to move the Instruction standing in the name of the hon. Member for the College Green Division of Dublin (Dr. Kenny)— That it be an Instruction to the Committee to insert clauses to enable the public to take sand and gravel from Killiney foreshore.


The Instruction is not in Order. I do not think the taking of sand and gravel from the foreshore relates to the subject-matter of the Bill. That is quite a sufficient reason for me to rule it out of Order; but if it also invades the rights of the Crown, which I am not certain of at this moment, that would be an additional reason for me to rule it out of Order, because no consent has been given for such an invasion of rights. I do not think this Instruction is relevant to the subject-matter of the Bill.


did not think that the Crown claimed so extensive foreshore rights in Ireland as in England, and he did not think there would be any invasion of Crown rights.


That may be so; I am not very sure on the point, and I will take what the hon. and gallant Gentleman says. He is not empowered to move the Instruction for another hon. Gentleman; but to save time, once that I have thought it best to state at however, the Instruction is out of Order.
