HC Deb 21 July 1902 vol 111 c781

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, if his attention has been drawn to the resolution of the Clifden District Council declaring the necessity for a good harbour at Dough-beg, Clifden; if he will take care when the Marine Works (Ireland) Bill becomes Law that the claims of Clifden will have consideration; will he say if the claim of Clifden to harbour accommodation has been considered by the Government since Clifden was connected with the Irish Railway system; and if these claims were pressed on him when he visited that town.


Yes, Sir. But until the Bill becomes law the allocation of the money provided by it cannot profitably be discussed. The reasonable claims of Clifden will be considered with due regard to the claims from other localities and to the amount of money to be made available.
