§ MR. PATRICK M'HUGH (Leitrim, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that great dissatisfaction prevails in certain portions of the Counties of Sligo and Mayo at the delay in the construction of the Collooney and Claremorris line of railway; has a contract been entered into with the Waterford and Limerick Railway Company for the completion and working of the line; and, if so, will the Government take stops to have the contract carried out; and can he state when the work of construction will be resumed?
§ *SIR J. T. HIBBERT
I am informed that the Waterford and Limerick Railway Company yesterday accepted the tender of a contractor for the construction of the line referred to, and that it is hoped that work will be speedily commenced.
In answer to a further question, SIR J. T. HIBBERT said the contractor is Mr. R. W. Worthington.
