HL Deb 04 August 1898 vol 64 c26

My Lords, this is a Bill which has also passed through the other House of Parliament without any opposition. It is proposed by its means to carry into law an agreement for the transfer of certain roads and lands now vested in the Commissioners of Kingstown Harbour to the Commissioners of the township of Kingstown. The Bill also gives, by its Third Schedule, legal force to an agreement which has been made between the township Commissioners and the Dublin, Wicklow, and Wexford Railway Company for the transfer to the latter of some portions of the roads in question. It is considered advisable to transfer these roads to the railway company for the purpose of providing station accommodation, which is necessary for the purposes of the Kingstown mail service. This Bill will finally settle some matters which have been the subject of prolonged legal controversy. I beg to move that the Bill be read a second time.

Question put.

Bill read a second time.
