§ MR. TULLY
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been directed to a Resolution adopted by the Leitrim County Council on the 19th ultimo, asking to have a light railway constructed from Arigna to Dromahaire, so as to connect North and South Leitrim, develop the Arigna Coal and Iron Works, the Lough Allen Clay Works, and the Creevelea Iron Mines and Peat Works; and whether he can state what action he proposes to take in regard to this project.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
Yes, Sir. But legislation would be necessary to give effect to the Resolution. It is eminently desirable that something should be done in the direction indicated. This project, 666 and others germane to it, are not, however, so far advanced as to call for a public pronouncement on my part.
