§ SIR THOMAS ESMONDE (Wexford, N.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will communicate to the Arklow Harbour Board the plans for the suggested improvement to Arklow Harbour; and if he will state what arrangement has been made with the Department for Agriculture in Ireland for keeping Arklow Harbour open pending the carrying out of the proposed improvements there.
(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) Plans in detail have not yet been prepared. An arrangement has been made between the Harbour Commissioners and the Department of Agriculture by which dredging operations will be continued during the present year. The question of further continuing these operations will then be considered.
