§ 21. Mr. LYNCH
asked the amount of the yearly take of fish by the fishermen of Seafield and Quilty; and whether any estimate has ever been made of the extent to which this amount might be increased if the facilities and the necessary safeguards were developed so as to secure the utmost possible efficiency?
§ Mr. DUKE
I cannot accept the suggestion that the engineer who reported on this scheme was not a competent person, but when I am in Ireland I will take the opportunity of discussing the matter with various authorities who have to deal with the question, and if anything reasonable can be done it shall be done.
