To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the works to be carried out under the Marine Works Act at Gortnasate, Portnoo, and Cladnageerah will be commenced during the present summer; and if he can say whether any arrangements have been math with respect to the balance of £1,500 required for the construction (under the revised estimate) for a pier and breakwater at Falcorrib.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The Commissioners of Public Works have accepted a tender for the work at Gortnasate, which will shortly be commenced. The report of the Commissioners in the case of the works proposed at Portnoo and Cladnageerah is about to be submitted to the Treasury. When Treasury approval has been signified tenders will be called for without delay. No decision has been arrived at with respect to the question of the expenditure of money at Falcorrib.
