HC Deb 07 March 1895 vol 31 cc532-3

On behalf of the hon. Member for Dublin, St. Patrick's (Mr. W. Field): I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether he is aware of the fact that, with a view to develope the fishing industry of the north-west coast of Ireland, the Great Northern Railway Company, along with the Donegal Company, brought over a number of English and Scotch fish buyers who promised to send over boats if the Killybegs Pier was erected; and, whether he will now advise the Government to make the necessary expenditure upon this undertaking?


The facts appear to be substantially as stated in the first paragraph. With regard to the question of the erection of a pier at Killybegs, I have nothing to add to my reply to a similar inquiry which was addressed to me on the 21st February by my hon. and learned Friend the Member for South Donegal.
