§ 35. Mr. HUGH BARRIE
asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether there is any prospect of the port of Heysham being opened for the reception of Irish cattle; whether he is aware that the delay in opening it is causing loss and inconvenience to shippers from the port of Londonderry; and has he received representations on the subject from those concerned, including the Londonderry Harbour Commissioners?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I understand that the Midland Railway Company are considering whether it is preferable to adapt the existing landing place in conformity with the Board's requirements, or to provide entirely new accommodation. I have received representations on the subject from several interested bodies including a letter dated the 2nd October last from the Londonderry Harbour Commissioners.
