§ MR. W. ABRAHAM
On behalf of Mr. McCARTAN, I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, whether he will state the amount recommended by the Board of Works as required to restore the pier and harbour works at Newcastle, county Down, and whether he will mention the amount proposed to be given by the Treasury toward this object?
§ MR. HANBURY
The estimated amount required to restore the pier is £12,000 with a margin of £1,000 more for possible contingencies. The maximum amount which under certain conditions the Treasury might consent to provide would be £5, 000.
