HC Deb 24 July 1902 vol 111 c1156
MR. HUGH LAW (Donegal, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state the amount of the subsidies paid to Scotch curers by the Congested Districts Board in respect of the development of the summer fishing on the Donegal coast; whether it is proposed to continue these subsidies next year; and whether the same terms will be offered to native as to other curers.


The total amount of the subsidies paid to Scotch merchants was £96. One merchant received £64 for four boats, and another £32 for two boats. The same terms were offered to a Cork firm, but, failing to find boats, it declined the offer. It is not proposed to renew this system next season.
