§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he has received the Report of the auditor of the Cavan and Leitrim Light Railway; whether he is aware that the directors still keep their office in Dublin at a cost of £500 to the cesspayers, who have guaranteed this line, and that the line is still unable to pay a dividend without a baronial contribution from Cavan and Leitrim; and, will he call the attention of the Treasury to this wasteful expenditure?
§ *MR. HANBURY
The Report was received on the 4th June. It is within the discretion of the directors of the company where its central offices shall be, and, even assuming that any additional expense is caused by the offices of the company being in Dublin instead of at one of the towns on their line, it is by no means clear that the affairs of the company, and therefore the interests of the cesspayers, would benefit by a change.
