HC Deb 19 August 1887 vol 319 c1098
MR. HOOPER (Cork, S.E.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, he w many cottages have been authorized to be erected under the Labourers' (Ireland) Act in the Kinsale Union; and, who is responsible for the dilatoriness with which the Acts are being put in force there, whether the-Board of Guardians or the Local Government Board?


(who replied) said, the Local Government Board had authorized, under the Labourers' (Ireland) Act, the erection of 42 labourers' cottages in the Kinsale Union. The conditional order was made on the 6th of May and became absolute on the 28th of June. There was no unnecessary delay in the matter on the part of the Local Government Board; and there was no doubt that the Guardians, as soon as they had made the necessary arrangements to obtain possession of the land, would proceed with the erection of the houses.
