§ MR. GILHOOLY (Cork, W.)
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, Whether the preliminaries for the erection of a Coastguard Station on Bere Island have been completed; and, if so, when the building of the same will commence?
§ THE FIRST LORD (Lord GEORGE HAMILTON) (Middlesex, Ealing)
, in reply, said, the negotiations which commenced some time back for the purpose of removing the Coastguard Station from Bere Island to a more convenient situation had not yet much advanced; and 1367 until the conditions which the Admiralty considered necessary were fulfilled he could not undertake that the building would be commenced.
§ MR. GILHOOLY
was understood to ask, was the noble Lord aware that the delay arose owing to some objection on the part of the landlord to the granting of the proposed site for the new Coastguard Station?
