asked the Minister for Transport if he intends to allocate any finance for the dredging of Westport Harbour, County Mayo.
Written Answers. - Westport Harbour Dredging.
Westport Harbour Commissioners made inquiries earlier this year about the possibility of grant assistance for dredging at Westport Harbour to accommodate barges carrying talc magnesite which a mining company proposed to mine on Inishbofin. The commissioners were informed that the proposal could not be examined unless the company gave a firm commitment to use the harbour.
I have not heard further from the commissioners in the matter.
