§ MR. O'KELLY (Mayo, N)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state when it is proposed to commence the building of the new piers at Belmullet, Mallaranny, and Inishlyre, seeing that the County Council of Mayo, at its meeting on the 23rd instant, accepted the schemes and agreed to make the necessary contribution; and if he will state what proportion of its unexpended grants under the Labourers Acts the county of Mayo will be asked to surrender under these schemes.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
Necessary inquiries are still being made into the Mallaranny-Belmullet scheme, and negotiations are proceeding with the Midland Great Western Railway Company in reference to Inishlyre. As the negotiations are still pending I regret I am not able to give any further information in the matter.
