MR. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Royal Canal requires to be cleansed, and that boat owners using the canal complain of its condition; and whether he will arrange with the responsible parties that the canal shall be cleansed at once.

(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) I am informed by the Board of Works that the ordinary maintenance of this canal, including cleansing, is being carried on. The Board are prepared to consider and inquire into any specific complaints which may be made to them by boat owners.
