Vol. 239 No. 9

Written Answers. - Indebtedness of Harbour Authorities.


asked the Minister for Transport and Power (a) the total debt of all harbour authorities at 31st March, 1969, and (b) the cost of servicing it.

Accounts have not yet been furnished by any of the harbour authorities scheduled under the Harbours Act, 1946, in respect of the year ended 31st March, 1969.

The accounting year for the majority of those harbour authorities is the calendar year and the latest year for which their total indebtedness is available is the year ended 31st December, 1967. As indicated in my reply to the Deputy's question on this subject on 4th February, 1969, total indebtedness at that date was £2,707,000 approximately and the cost of servicing in that year was £191,000 approximately.
