§ MAJOR JAMESON (Clare, W.)
I beg-to ask the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture for Ireland, in reference to the recent deputation and correspondence on the subject of assistance 1064 being given by the Government to the fishing industry of West Clare, will the Department of Agriculture give assistance in aid of the fishing industry in West Clare; and, if so, what sum will the Department of Agriculture allocate to West Clare out of the grant by Government voted for that purpose.
§ THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE FOR IRELAND (Mr. PLUNKETT,) Dublin County, S.
The Department is considering what steps may be taken to develop the fishing industry in West Clare. The amount of money available for the purpose cannot be stated until the requirements of other districts are ascertained.
