HC Deb 15 May 1907 vol 174 cc960-1
MR. BOLAND (Kerry, S.)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he has received the copy of a resolution passed by the Cahirciveen Ratepayers' Protective Association on 24th April with reference to the proposed improvements to the pier at Cahirciveen; and whether he proposes to take any, and, if so, what action in the matter.


I have received a copy of the resolution in question. The improvement to which the association takes exception is proposed to be carried out by Trinity College in pursuance of the recommendation made by the Board of Trade inspector after a local inquiry. At the time of the inquiry the improvement was accepted by those interested as a satisfactory equivalent for the accommodation which they lost by the erection of a store on the quay, and the Kerry County Council afterwards passed a resolution urging that it should be carried out. The Board of Trade have already intimated to Trinity College that they are prepared to give their sanction to the proposed improvement.
