HC Deb 05 July 1904 vol 137 cc632-3
MR. O'DOHERTY (Donegal, N.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether any arrangement has yet been arrived at between the Irish Government and the Donegal County Council as to the allocation of the money ear-marked for the county of Donegal under the Marine Works Act; and, if so, what works do the Government propose to carry out under the Act, and the sums of money they intend to spend on each.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) Works have been approved at Gortnasate at an expenditure of £5,000, of which £4,480 will be provided under the Marine Works Act, £500 by the Congested Districts Board, and £20 from local sources. On the 27th June the County Council forwarded the necessary resolutions with respect to works proposed at Portnoo, Cladnageragh, and Downing's Bay. These resolutions are at present before the Commissioners of Public Works for report. An expenditure of £3,000 is contemplated at Portnoo out of funds provided by the Marine Works Act, £1,500 at Cladnageragh, and £4,500 at Downing's Bay. The Congested Districts Board will also make a contribution in each case.
