HC Deb 24 May 1895 vol 34 c235

On behalf of the hon. Member for East Kerry (Mr. SHEEHAN), I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, in view of the 63rd section of The Fisheries (Ireland) Act, 1842, which provides that the sluices which admit the water to the wheels of all mills or factories which derive their supply from rivers frequented by salmon shall at all seasons of the year be kept shut for 24 consecutive hours in each week, between six o'clock on Saturday afternoon and six o'clock on Monday morning, if he would state what steps have been taken by the Fishery Commissioners to have the sluices of the river Flesk, near Killarney, shut down every week as required?


I replied at considerable length to a question addressed to me in this matter on the 6th July of last year by the hon. Member for Cork, and that reply, as the hon. Gentleman on reference to it will perceive, covers the inquiries which he now puts to me.
