§ MR. MACVEAGH
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether any representations have been made to the Board of Works with reference to Port-rush Harbour, county Antrim; whether any representations have been made to the Public Works Loan Board; and whether the Board of Works has any, and, if so, what, jurisdiction over the Public Works Loan Board.
§ MR. VICTOR CAVENDISH
The Board of Works have received no representations† See (4) Debates, exli.; 903.1734 on the subject of Portrush Harbour. I learn that the Public Works Loan Commissioners are now in communication with the Portrush Harbour Company. The Public Works Loan Board is an absolutely independent body. May I add that when I answered a Question on this matter the other day I was not aware that any representations had been made to the Public Works Loan Board, nor was I aware a report had appeared in an Irish paper that I was present at the deputation.
