93. Captain CRAIG
asked if the Secretary to the Treasury is now in a position to give the House the result of the joint appeal by his Department and the Office of Works to the Development Commissioners for sufficient funds to carry out the improvements to the Royal Harbour of Ardglass, county Down, necessary to enable the local fishermen to cope with the steadily increasing fishing industry; 1273 and, if so, will work be begun immediately, in order that the berthing accommodation and dredging may be completed in time to be of use when the next season sets in?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
No, Sir; the matter has not yet come before the Development Oommission. About half the necessary surveys have been made, and the Board of Works hope to be able to submit their application for a Grant from the Development Fund to the Treasury early next month.
