HC Deb 11 March 1915 vol 70 c1558

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the attention of the Congested Districts Board had been called to the damage caused by a recent storm to the pier under construction at Ballinskelligs; and whether steps will be taken to repair the damage?

May I express my own sympathy and that of every Member of the House with the right hon. Gentleman (Mr. Birrell) in his bereavement.

Mr. T. W. RUSSELL (Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture, Ireland)

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The Congested Districts Board have called for a report as to the extent of the damage caused, on receipt of which the question of repairs will be fully considered.
