HC Deb 14 February 1896 vol 37 c334

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if his attention has been called to the dangerous state of the harbour at Wicklow, and whether he will recommend that a sufficient grant shall be made from the Treasury to repair the damage?


I do not think the situation has changed since the matter was discussed in the House on the 29th August last. The Treasury are prepared to advance a loan, not a grant, if the Baronies interested will guarantee it. Under this arrangement the extra charge on the rates would not exceed at the utmost 2½d. in the £.
