§ MR. THOMAS O'DONNELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has taken into consideration the burden of taxation which the Dingle Railway and the Fenit Pier are to a congested county; whether he proposes to make a grant for the purpose of carrying out those structural alterations in this railway recommended by the Local Government Board 621 inspector, with a view of making the line financially successful; and whether he will take steps to reduce the charge paid annually on the loan for the construction of Fenit Pier to the rate at which the Treasury can borrow the money.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
I have considered these questions, in so far as they affect the Irish Government. They are closely related to other questions of a similar character, and can only be decided after a careful consideration of the whole matter in conference with other Departments.
