HC Deb 28 May 1894 vol 24 c1401

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury what has been the result of the negotiations between the Irish Congested Districts Board, the Irish Board of Works, and the Treasury respecting the construction of the deep-water pier at Killybegs; and can he say how soon the work of construction will be commenced?


I understand that a member of the Congested Districts Board has within the last few days been deputed to confer with the Board of Works as to the possibility of giving effect to the suggestion of the latter Board for a deep-water quay. If this is agreed upon the only question remaining would be as to whether there will be a sufficient margin upon the railway funds for the proposed contribution by the Board of Works, and the financial position is now being examined.
