§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state the cost of the operations undertaken by the Board of Agriculture at Inny Junction for the rearing of turf; how much of the crop was sold; what sum was realised in respect of the sale; and whether it is proposed to continue the experiment this year.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. WALTER LONG, Bristol S.)
The cost was about £1,150, exclusive of the cost of Departmental direction. No produce was sold, as there were no facilities for putting the turf on rail. The experiment is being continued this 760 year, and a railway siding and loading bank are being constructed.
