§ Mr. MULDOON
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the Viceregal Commission on Irish Railways reported in July, 1910, in favour of Grants from public funds being made to the Cork and Muskerry and the Donoughmore Extension, the Schull and Skibbereen, and the Timoleague and Courtmacsherry Railways, in respect of improvements necessitated by original defective construction; whether an application was made on behalf of these 1643W lines for the amounts specified by the Commission to the Development Commissioners; whether any Report was made upon this application by the Board of Public Works or the Irish Agricultural Department; what was the effect of such Reports; and whether the Development Commissioners have recommended any, and what, Grants considered necessary by the Viceregal Commission to the Treasury?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
The answer to the first three questions is in the affirmative. The Development Commissioners were unable to recommend that any Grants should be made from the Development Fund.
