§ MR. BOLAND (Kerry, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state on what date the allocation of the funds for marine works at the disposal of the Congested Districts Board for the current year was made; whether he is aware that an application for the improvement of the slip at Roads, county Kerry, was made on 25th June, 1901, and on previous occasions; and whether, if it is not possible to carry out permanent improvements this year, the Congested Districts Board will place irons on the slip so as to afford a proper foothold for the fishermen before the autumn fishing begins.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The available funds were allocated in March last. The consideration of works, such as that at Roads, for which a grant had not already been made, was then postponed. The Board's engineer will be instructed to place irons on the slip at Roads, if he can arrange to do so, before the autumn fishing.
