HC Deb 16 September 1909 vol 10 cc2318-9

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in constructing the new fort at Templebreedy, in Cork Harbour, the War Department closed up an ancient right of way along the cliffs at this place; whether, when a like infringement of public rights took place at Black Nor Battery, Portland, the War Department constructed a new road from Portland Hill to Fortune Well, convenient to the pathway closed up; and whether, in the case of Temple-breedy Fort, a like course will be adopted by the Department for the convenience of inhabitants and visitors of this summer resort?

The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Haldane)

The War Department is unaware of the existence of any public right of way along the cliffs where Temple-breedy battery now stands, and no claim to such a right has been made by the local authority.
