HC Deb 10 June 1887 vol 315 c1586
MR. FOLEY (Galway, Connemara)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether any, or what, steps have been taken by the Local Government Hoard to meet the application of the Oughterard Board of Guardians, for the erection, in the Lettermore district of that union, of a dispensary and dispensary residence, for the use of the medical officer of the district; and, whether it is a fact that the only available residence at present, and for the past three years, for the use of the medical officer has been a poor cabin in a remote part of the district?


(who replied) said, the Local Government Board found it necessary, in connection with this application, which was received on the 13th April last, to ask the Guardians for some particulars. These particulars had not yet been furnished, and any delay which might have occurred was therefore attributable to the Guardians. The Local Government Board were not aware that the present dispensary residence was situated in a remote part of the district; but the medical officer had reported that a residence was very much needed.
