§ MR. ARTHUR O'CONNOR
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Whether the Report of the Engineer of 800 the Board of Works in Ireland, with reference to the Barrow Drainage, has been delayed pending the completion of valuation to be furnished by Mr. Fitzgerald; and, whether, as that valuation is now complete, he will cause the Report of the Engineer to be laid upon the Table; and, if he can state the total expense of the preliminary inquiry?
§ MR. COURTNEY
The Engineer's Report cannot be completed except upon consideration of that of the valuator. When received it will be presented to Parliament. The preliminary inquiries are expected to cost about £1,700, half of which will be paid by the public.
