HC Deb 18 May 1905 vol 146 c757
MR. JORDAN (Fermanagh, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the bed and soil of Lake Erne surrounding the town of Enniskillen are claimed to be the property of Lord Enniskillen, and are also claimed by the Commissioners of Woods (Dublin Office) to be the property of the Crown, and that the ownership has been the subject of correspondence for some time past between the parties; and whether, seeing that the Urban Council of Enniskillen is being retarded by this difference in carrying out a projected scheme of sanitation and roadway, he will state what decision, if any, has been arrived at between the claimants.


The matter is under investigation and a decision will be come to as soon as possible.
