§ MR. CONOR O'KELLY
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney-General for Ireland if he will state the reason for the delay in proceeding with the construction of the proposed new piers at Belmullet, Mallaranny, and Innishlyre, county Mayo; and, if it is still proposed to go on with these works, when a beginning will be made.
§ MR. ATKINSON
Negotiations are still in progress between the Government and the Midland Great Western Railway Company in reference to the scheme of which the construction of marine works in the county Mayo formed a part. Until these negotiations have been brought to a conclusion I cannot make any further statement in the matter.
