HC Deb 05 July 1904 vol 137 c633

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the attention of the Congested Districts Board, and of the Irish Government, has been called to the necessity for the construction of a sea wall and boat slip at Portasantal, Glen-gad, county Donegal; whether the fishery experts of the Board are of opinion that the proposed work would be of utility to the fishermen of the district, and save them labour and loss in the discharge of fish from their boats and the beaching thereof; and whether a grant will be made for this purpose out of the moneys voted by Parliament under the Marine Works Act.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The attention of the Congested Districts Board has been directed to the requirements of the fishermen at this place. There are no funds available for undertaking the proposed works there under the Act of 1902.
