§ MR. NOLAN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state the number of 363 bushels of foreign wheat consigned, during the year 1905, to the following ports in Ireland, respectively, Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Dundalk, and Drogheda; and whether he can give the names of the consignees.
The imports of wheat into the ports of Dublin, Cork, and Belfast during the year 1905 were as follows:—Dublin, 4,710,123 bushels; Cork, 2,610,608 bushels; Belfast, 2,888,853 bushels. These are the only ports in respect of which the Department of Agriculture publish separate information. No return of the wheat imported into Dundalk and Drogheda in 1905 can be given. The Department have no information as to the names of the consignees.
