HC Deb 04 March 1880 vol 251 c304

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether the Irish Local Government Board has as yet replied to applications and estimates for supply of seed potatoes sent in by various Unions, among others from Granard; if not, whether he will, take care that no unnecessary time is lost, as the matter is now very pressing?


Sir, I have been informed that an application was sent in by the Granard Board of Guardians; but owing to the change made in the Bill when passing through Parliament the estimate had to be sent back for amendment. When it is amended no time will be lost in acting on it.
