§ MR. GILHOOLY (Cork County, W.)
I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture for Ireland whether, in view of the importance of Baltimore as a fishing station, and also of the promises made by the Congested Districts Board and the Treasury to contribute towards the cost of the railway extension at Baltimore to deep water, immediate steps will be taken to have this work carried out.
§ THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE FOR IRELAND (Mr. PLUNKETT,) Dublin County, N.
The Congested Districts Board some years ago offered to contribute towards the cost of the construction of a pier at Baltimore on terms which were communicated to the railway company. The railway company, however, have not agreed to the terms of the offer, which has in consequence been withdrawn.
§ CAPTAIN DONELAN
Will the right hon. Gentleman take steps to ascertain the views of the Baltimore Harbour Board?
