THE MARQUESS OF CLANRICARDE
, in moving for a Copy of a Memorial presented to the Treasury last February relating to the Harbour of Howth; and of the answer, if any, that has been given to the Memorialists; and of any Minute of the Lords of the Treasary thereupon, said, that the harbour was constructed a good many years ago at a cost of £360,000; but it had gradually silted up, and now required to be repaired. A memorial had been presented to the Government requesting that a small portion of the funds which were at the disposal of the Treasury should be laid out on the harbour. That application was made so long ago as February; but no answer had yet been received, although the fishing season was rapidly approaching, when the delay might prove dangerous.
§ EARL GRANVILLE
said, the object of the memorialists required an Act of Parliament, and orders had already been given to have a Bill prepared. It would be laid on the table shortly.
§ Motion agreed to: Return ordered to be laid before the House.
§ House adjourned at a quarter before Six o'clock, to Friday next, half past Ten o'clock.
