§ DR. AMBROSE (Mayo, W.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has recently received a Resolution from the Westport Harbour Board, urging the necessity of carrying out in the neighbourhood of Westport the marine works sanctioned under the Marine Works (Ireland) Act; whether he is aware that the delay in carrying out those works has caused disappointment in the locality; and would he, during the Easter recess, visit West-port with a view to hearing the views of the inhabitants on the proposed works.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) I have seen a resolution on this subject which was received in September last from the Westport Harbour Board by my predecessor in office. The matter in question will not escape my attention, but I cannot at present say whether other duties in Ireland will permit me to have the pleasure of an expedition to Westport at Easter.
