§ MR. BRADLAUGH (Northampton)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether a large reduction of men employed in the Ninth Division of the Ordnance Survey Department is now taking place; whether this is in consequence of the near completion of the Ordnance Survey of the United Kingdom; and, whether he can state how many, and which, counties are yet un-surveyed?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. PLUNKET) (Dublin University)
(who replied) said: A large reduction is being carried out in the Ninth Division of the Ordnance Survey Department, and arrangements have been made for making a similar reduction in the other Divisions of the Ordnance Survey Department this year. This is in consequence of the near completion of the Ordnance Survey of the United Kingdom. No county remains of which the survey is not either in progress or completed. The field surveys will be completed by August, 1887; the plans, with contours, will be completed by September 30, 1889, and the publication will be completed by March 31, 1890.
