HC Deb 26 July 1898 vol 62 c1305

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if he can now give any further particulars as to the intended action of the Board of Trade in connection with removing the sand and stones out of Donaghadee Harbour?


It is not intended to take any steps for the clearing of Donaghadee Harbour during the present year, and no provision has been made in the current Estimates for the purpose. The matter will be fully investigated in time for consideration in connection with the Estimates for next year. The Board of Works do not regard it as a matter of special urgency, as the silting which has taken place is not a source of any danger to the class of vessels which make use of the harbour.
