HC Deb 11 February 1904 vol 129 c1035

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether steps will shortly be taken to carry out the improvements, under the Marine Works (Ireland) Act, at Valentia Ferry, county Kerry; and whether a dredger will be provided to improve the harbours at Kenmare and other ports in the West and South of Ireland.


No decision has yet been reached in reference to the projected works at Valentia. The question of providing a dredger in connection with Irish harbours, to be placed at the disposal of local authorities on loan or hire, is engaging consideration.
