HC Deb 25 January 1897 vol 45 cc389-90
Mr. W. REES DAVIES (Pembrokeshire)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he has been in communication with the Fishguard Bay Railway and Pier Company in regard to a memorial received by him last year from the inhabitants of Goodwick, Pembrokeshire, in reference to the alleged powers proposed to be exercised by the company; and what steps does he propose to take to preserve to the fishermen and inhabitants generally the existing access to the seashore, which would be seriously interfered with by the company's proposals?


I am still in communication with the Fishguard and Ross-lare Railway and Harbours Company upon the subject of the works they propose to construct in Fishguard Bay, and am awaiting a statement from the Company as to the facilities they are prepared to provide for boats landing, &c, at Goodwick, if the existing pier there is interfered with. The representations contained in the memorial referred to by the hon. Member will continue to receive my careful consideration.
