HC Deb 23 July 1897 vol 51 c902

I beg to ask the, Secretary to the Treasury whether it is the intention of the Treasury, in connection with the proposed loan to the Wicklow Harbour Commissioners, to write off the £6,000 arrears due, on foot of a former loan; and, if so, whether it is necessary to provide for the remission in of the above sum by the insertion of a clause in the Wicklow Harbour Advances Bill?


Yes, Sir, if the Wicklow Harbour Bill passes, it is the intention to write off the loan referred to. This will be done by a clause in next year's Public Works Loans Bill, which course is more convenient for purposes of record.
