HC Deb 04 March 1901 vol 90 c392
MR. REDDY (King's County, Birr)

On behalf of my hon. friend the Member for East Galway I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, as the International Railway Corporation, Limited, London, have agreed to comply with conditions laid down by the Irish Office in reference to the restoration and reopening of the Birr and Portumna line of railway, he will state what is the cause of any further delay.


The proposals of the International Railway Corporation were brought by the Irish Government before the Treasury, who did not sec their way to hold out any expectation that they will consent to a grant of £12,000 in aid of the reconstruction of the line.
