§ MR. T. HARRINGTON (Dublin, Harbour)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury what steps are being taken by the Board of Control in connection with the erection of the new asylum at Portrane; and have tenders been publicly advertised for, or is it the intention of the Board to invite only a limited number of builders to enter?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
With the permission of my right hon. Friend, I will reply to this Question. Tenders for building the new asylum at Portrane were invited by public advertisement, and at the meeting of the Board of Control held on the 21st instant, one of the tenders received was accepted. Arrangements are now in progress for carrying on the work.
