§ 68. Mr. FFRENCH
asked the Vice President of the Department of Agriculture (Ireland) if he can say why the improvement of Ballyhack pier has been stopped and the man in charge of the work taken away; is he aware that the improvement work can only be done in summer; and, seeing that the fishermen will be the sufferers next winter if the work is not completed, will he see that it is resumed as soon as possible?
§ The CHIEF SECRETARY for IRELAND (Mr. Birrell)
Work at Ballyhack has been suspended and the foreman removed because the county council are not yet in possession of the necessary title to the site of the works. When the difficulties have been overcome, the Department are ready to resume operations at the shortest notice.
