§ MR. J. P. FARRELL (Cavan, W.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade what arrangement, if any, has been come to for the protection of life from the dangerous condition of the Royal Canal Harbour at Longford?
§ MR. RITCHIE
The Board of Trade have urged the railway company to provide a fence round the harbour, but as 931 at present advised they decline to do so. I shall be happy to show the hon. Member the correspondence with the railway company. The Board of Trade have, however, no power to compel them to fence the harbour.
