HC Deb 10 April 1905 vol 144 c1005

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland how many fishing boats were built for the Congested Districts Beard in 1904, and how many of them were built in Ireland; and how many boats are in order for the Board this year, and how many are to be built in Ireland.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) Seven fishing boats were built for the Board in the year 1904–5, and of these six were built in Ireland. For 1905–6 five have, so far, been ordered, and three of them from Scotland, because they could not be built within the required time in Ireland.
