HC Deb 02 March 1903 vol 118 cc1117-8

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether the promised inquiry has been held regarding the high-water line at Inch Strand, county Kerry; and, if so, will he state the result.


In reply to a question by the hon. Member on 27th October, I stated that the Board of Trade had received complaints that the owner of the adjoining land had erected posts upon the beach which were said to interfere with the use of the foreshore at Inch Strand. From inquiries which have since been made at my request by the Navigating Officer of H. M. S. "Collingwood" it appears that the posts are above the high-water line of ordinary spring tides, and in these circumstances the Board of Trade have no jurisdiction in the matter.
