§ Mr. DUKE
The circumstances of West Clare are well known in the Irish Office. Some years ago the Congested Districts 1320 Board considered carefully the proposal as to Poulnasherry reclamation, but decided against taking any action. Expenditure for harbour works such as Kilrush has had to be suspended during the War. The Board inform me that they would be glad to receive and would carefully consider suggestions as regards the development of industries other than engineering works.
