HC Deb 05 March 1912 vol 35 cc322-3W

asked the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture (Ireland) what is the position between the Wexford County Council and the Department with reference to the dredging of Kilmore Harbour; and when he expects the dredger will be sent to Kilmore?


The Department offered to dredge portion of Kilmore Harbour to an extent estimated to cost £375, and to provide two-thirds of that sum. They also offered to carry out further dredging if the county council co-operated with the Department in providing one-half (£250) of the estimated cost thereof (£500). The council have accepted the offer first mentioned and have postponed consideration of the second. Kilmore Harbour has been placed on the list of places for dredging when the Department's plant becomes available for work this year. It is hoped that it will be at Kilmore in about a month from this date.
