§ MR. J. F. X. O'BRIEN (Mayo, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the 1676 Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether complaints have reached him that a large sum has been spent on the drainage of the River Robe, with, as result, yearly flooding of the lands on the banks where the work remains unfinished; whether a comparatively small sum would remedy the evils complained of; and, whether he will now have the drainage of the River Robe completed without further delay?
§ * MR. JACKSON
On two occasions recently I have answered similar questions about the River Robe. I can only repeat that I know of no intention on the part of the Government to proceed with drainage works on that river.
