§ MR. THOMAS O'DONNELL (Kerry, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord- Lieutenant of Ireland whether any steps have yet been taken with a | view to relieve the ratepayers of county Kerry of the burden which is caused by the Dingle Railway.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. WYNDHAM,) Dover
I have been conducting prolonged negotiations with the Directors of the Great Southern and Western Railway with a view to the transfer of this line to the system of that company. I regret to say that even now I have not reached a satisfactory conclusion. But I do not despair of reaching one.
