HC Deb 29 November 1917 vol 99 c2234W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he has seen a resolution, passed by the Wexford County Council, stating that, as the Wexford Harbour Commissioners had been severely hit by war conditions and consequently suffered financially, the Government should assist the Harbour Commissioners in dredging the harbour and quay berths; and whether the Government is prepared to do anything in the matter?


My hon. Friend has asked me to reply. I have received a copy of the resolution, and am making inquiries as to the question of dredging. The conditions referred to in the question are general, and special assistance can only be given for urgent reasons of present necessity.
