HC Deb 30 April 1883 vol 278 c1435

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, What is the cause of the delay on the part of the Board of Works in lodging the grant for emigration purposes under the Arrears Act; and, whether he is aware that, in the Letterkenny Union, county Donegal, the contracts are entered into, the emigrants ready, and no money to hand?


Sir, I learn by telegram that the emigration grant to the Letterkenny Union was paid on Saturday. So far as I can ascertain, there has been no avoidable delay in dealing with the case.
