§ MR. WILLIAM McKILLOP (Sligo, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the pier and boatslip built at Aughris, county Sligo, are incomplete; and, in view of the fact that the completion and repair of those works cannot be undertaken by the Congested Districts Board, will he direct the Board of Works in Ireland, under the Marine Works Act or other powers, to have the pier and boatslip put in such a condition as will render them serviceable for the development of the fishing industry in that locality.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. WYNDHAM, Dover)
The pier and boatslip were completed before their transference to the county authorities in 1889. An inspection made at low water last month showed that the works had suffered no damage or injury. The funds provided by the Marine Works Act have been fully allocated.
