HC Deb 15 March 1917 vol 91 c1283
9. Mr. KELLY

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the Board of Works have laid before him and before the Irish Railway Committee a full Report as to the unpunctuality of trains on the Burtonport Railway, as to the state of the locomotives, and as to the various causes of complaint which have been verified against the Lough Swilly Company since this line was handed over to them; if so, whether he will circulate such Report; and, if no such Report has been submitted, will he call for it, circulate it, and submit a copy to the Irish Railway Committee, who are considering the question of the working of the Burtonport Railway?


The Board of Works have made the Report referred to, and it is at present being considered by the Irish Railway Executive Committee. I will consider whether the Report should be published.

32. Mr. HUGH LAW

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the Irish Railways Executive Committee has made any Report upon the working of the Burtonport line by the Lough Swilly Railway Company?


I understand that the Report referred to will shortly be completed. I may say that this matter is engaging the close attention of the authorities in Ireland, and there is full determination that this railway shall be made available.
