§ MR. W. J. CORBET (Wicklow, E.)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, If he is aware that considerable damage has again occurred at Arklow Harbour by the floods in the river; and, if he will state how the cost of repairs is to be provided for?
§ THE SECRETARY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)
I am informed that no damage whatever has occurred to the new pier at Arklow, either from floods in the river or from the sea. Some damage to the old harbour works was done during the violent gales which occurred last month. They are now being repaired by the Board of Works. The cost is defrayed out of money received from tolls, and a small balance left after completion of the new works.
