§ MR. CLANCY (Dublin Co., N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the condition of Loughshinny Harbour, County of Dublin: whether it is a fact that the pier at Loughshinny has now for several years been left but half built; and whether he will recommend the Board of Public Works in Ireland to devote to its completion a part of the money now at its disposal in the shape of repayments of loans out of the Sea Fisheries Fund, out of which the original grant for the pier referred to was made.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The reply to the second query is in the negative. The pier was constructed as designed, and is in good order. No complaint has been received alleging that the accomodation at the pier is insufficient. In any case, the unexpended balance of the Sea Fisheries Fund has already been hypothecated.
§ MR. CLANCY
Do I understand that no complaints have been received? And if so, is it not because of the difficulty of getting the Irish Government to answer questions?
