§ MR. MULHOLLAND (Londonderry, N.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether a contract has been entered into for the construction of the fishery pier at Portstewart, county Derry; and, whether, in view of the distress which exists in some parts of Ireland, steps are being taken to obtain contracts as soon as possible for the works recommended by the Fishery Commissioners?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HENRY H. FOWLER) (Wolverhampton, E.)
I beg to answer this Question. A contract has been entered into for the works at Portstewart. Of 57 works recommended by the Fishery Commissioners, and sanctioned, five are already completed, 44 are in course of construction, and the remaining eight are in forward condition for the earliest possible commencement.
