§ Mr. BOLAND
asked the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture (Ireland) whether any expert inspection has yet been made of that portion of the channel between Reenard and Portmagee to which his attention has already been drawn as eminently suitable for the cultivation of edible mussels; and, if so, what has been the result?1356W
§ Mr. T. W. RUSSELL
Expert inspection has been made of part of the area mentioned, but not westward of Lough Mask in the direction of Portmagee. Lough Mask and the neighbouring parts of the shore have been found to be quite unsuitable for mussel culture. An inspection of the remainder of the area will be made within the present month.
