HC Deb 30 October 1882 vol 274 cc364-5

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it is true that certain works for the improvement of the town of Arklow, which were presented and passed at special sessions and fiated by Mr. Baron Dowse at the late assizes, have been stopped by the county surveyor at the request of Lord Carysfort; and, whether he will, in view of the great want of employment in Arklow at the present time, order the county surveyor to cause the works to be at once proceeded with in accordance with Law and with the desire of the ratepayers and inhabitants of the town?


The Board of Public Works in Dublin inform me that they do not know anything of the work referred to in this Question. I have, therefore, directed inquiry to be made of the County Surveyor, but have not yet received his Report. When I do so I will let the hon. Member know the result.
