HC Deb 30 July 1913 vol 56 c539W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether the attention of the Board of Public Works in Ireland has been directed to the complaints made regarding the omission of the Board to provide a boat-repairing slip in the Royal harbour of Howth; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?


I understand that a boat-repairing slip would cost several hundred pounds without producing any commensurate increase in the harbour revenue. As at present advised, the Board of Works are not convinced that it is required.
