HC Deb 14 December 1888 vol 332 c234
MR. P. J. O'BRIEN (Tipperary, N.)

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he is aware of an application on the part of the Sanitary Authority at Nenagh, County Tipperary, made a considerable time since to the War Office, for a small portion of the disused barrack field at Nenagh, to be used for the purpose of a reservoir for the proposed Nenagh Waterworks; whether, after several communications forwarded to them on the subject, on the 10th of October last they replied— That the matter was referred to the Military Authorities in Ireland, who would give no delay to the matter; whether, subsequently, an Inspector was sent down to make a Report as to the site required, but that ever since no communication has been made to the Sanitary Authority at Nenagh, thereby causing unnecessary delay to the proposed works, which the Local Government Board are pressing to have completed; and, whether he will take steps to have the matter arranged without further delay?

THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)

The matter referred to in the Question has been arranged; and the use of the piece of land will be granted as soon as the necessary legal steps have been completed.
