HC Deb 27 July 1905 vol 150 cc609-10

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the money promised under the Mirine Works (Ireland) Act for the construction of a pier in Clifden Harbour has not yet been expended on that work; and whether, in view of the importance to the propsr development of the fishing industry of the construction of such a per, he will, without further delay, carry out the intention and promise of the Act in respect to Clifden.


In March, 1903, the Government announced to the county council its intention to allocate from funds provided under the Marine Works Act a sum of £4,000 on works at Kinvarra, Salthill, or Clifden. Of this amount £1,100 have already been allocated to Kinvarra. The question of undertaking works at Clifden is at present engaging consideration.
