HC Deb 21 March 1904 vol 132 c246
MR. FFRENCH (Wexford, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary a Question of which I have given him private notice— whether he has yet satisfied himself that the Wexford Harbour Board require the use of a powerful dredger to improve the harbour, so as to meet the requirements of the port, and what steps he proposes to take to facilitate the object the board have in view?


I understand that the Wexford Harbour requires the use of a powerful dredger, and if hon. Members for Ireland agree to the application of a sum of money from the Development Grant for the employment of a dredger which can be utilised in dredging harbours on the Irish coast I will give favourable consideration to the matter. But I cannot treat with the Wexford Harbour Board separately in this matter.
