HC Deb 24 February 1905 vol 141 c1213

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether all the moneys voted by Parliament under the Marine Works Act have as yet been allocated; and, if so, how; if not, what is the surplus remaining, and how does he propose to allocate the same.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The estimated cost of approved works, apart from local and other contributions in aid, is £30,663. Negotiations are proceeding in respect of other works estimated to entail an additional charge on funds provided by the Act amounting to £56,100. The reserve, £13,237, will be required to meet possible excesses on estimates.
