HC Deb 06 November 1882 vol 274 c857

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, with reference to the action of the county surveyor of Wicklow in putting a stop, at the request of Lord Carysfort, to the works for the improvement of the town of Arklow, which had been passed by the grand jury, fiated by the judge of assize, a contract duly entered into under bail bonds, and which had been actually commenced, If he can now state whether the county surveyor acted justifiably or within his powers on the occasion; and, if not, whether he will take any and what steps to have the works proceeded with at once?


It has been stated to me that the Grand Jury who passed the presentment did so subject to the consent of the adjoining owners being obtained. The secretary to the Grand Jury has been asked to report specifically on this point; but I have not yet received his reply.
