§ MR. NANNETTI
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether any complaint has been made to the Commissioners of Irish Lights that the new Howth Bailey Flashing Light, which has been stated to show only one flash every 30 seconds, really shows two flashes in that interval.
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
The Commissioners of Irish Lights telegraph to me that their attention has been called to a second very faint flash in the Howth Bailey Light, due to reflection from the lantern glass. They state that it is due 1268 to the apparatus not being complete, and that it will eventually disappear, in all probability.
