§ MR. BERESFORD
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether his attention has been called to the unsatisfactory condition of the sanitary arrangements of the town of Killeshandra, county Cavan; if he is aware that the local inspector has on several occasions reported the state of the sewerage to the Board of the Cavan Union, pointing out the unhealthy condition of the town; and, notwithstanding these reports, no effort has been made to remedy the evil; and, whether, under these circumstances, he will have a full investigation made by the Government inspector of the district?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
The attention of the Local Government Board in Ireland has on several occasions been called to the unsatisfactory condition of the sanitary arrangements in the town of Killeshandra, and they have seen very unfavourable Reports on the subject from the Medical Officer of Health. The Local Government Board have frequently brought the matter under the notice of the sanitary authority, who have now at length referred it to a Committee for Report. The Local Government Board have not yet seen the Report of that Committee; but if, when it reaches them, they find that the sanitary authority are not prepared to adopt prompt and efficient measures to remedy the evil complained of, it will then be the duty of the Board to cause an investigation to be made by one of their Inspectors, and to take such other steps as may to them appear necessary.
