HC Deb 03 August 1903 vol 126 c1279
DR. AMBROSE (Mayo, W.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Len-tenant of Ireland, whether, in view of the fact that the agricultural and manufacturing industries along the coast of Mayo are handicapped owing to the railway charges for the carriage of goods, and that a steamer service between Sligo and Galway, calling at the different towns on the coast of Mayo, would materially assist the development of those industries by cheapening the transit of goods, he will see that such a service is established.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) If, as I hope, a harbour is constructed at Inishlyre, it is not unreasonable to expect that steamers will call there without subsidies.
