HC Deb 22 May 1905 vol 146 cc982-3

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in view of the announcement that the Tralee Harbour Board expect to be through with the dredger by the 1st of August, and the fact that the need for dredging at the entrance to the new dock of Galway is pressing, and that the Galway Harbour Commissioners have been making representations on the subject to the Board of Works for years, he will place the dredger at the disposal of the Galway Harbour Commission early in August.


The dredger is engaged during the whole of the present year, but the Board of Works are endeavouring to make arrangements to render it available for use at Galway as soon as possible next year, and they are in correspondence with the Harbour Commissioners on the subject.
