HC Deb 05 March 1896 vol 38 c212

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether he is aware of the number of representative meetings recently held in Castlewellan, Hilltown, Newry, and in other districts in county Down, in favour of a scheme for constructing a light railway between Newry and Castlewellan; and, whether, considering the necessity for opening up this portion of county Down by means of a line of railway, he will make inquiry as to what can be done in the matter.


Such meetings have been held, and the matter will be considered in connection with other proposals of a similar character.
