§ DR. ROBERT AMBROSE (Mayo, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that, owing to the imperfect and primitive condition of the landing piers in Clare Island and Louisburgh, several persons are drowned every year, and that cattle are frequently lost in the passage from Clare Island to Louisburgh, owing to the same cause; and, if he will press upon the notice of the Congested Districts Board the necessity for building proper piers at those points?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
I have no information before me showing whether the statements in the first paragraph are, or are not, accurate; but, the suggestions of the hon. Member will be considered by the Congested Districts Board at its next meeting.
