HC Deb 30 July 1906 vol 162 c439

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state whether the memorial presented to the Congested Districts Board with reference to the construction of a ferry between Kilbeg and Knockferry on Lough Corrib, county Galway, has yet been considered by the Board; and, if so, can he state what decision the Board has arrived at with regard to the matter.

(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) On the 16th instant the Congested Districts Board decided to make a grant of one-third of the cost of the proposed ferry across Lough Corrib, subject to the conditions that such grant shall not exceed £300, and that the work shall be carried out by the county authorities in accordance with plans and specifications to be approved by the Board.
