HC Deb 25 July 1889 vol 338 c1259
MR. HAYDEN (Leitrim, S.)

I beg to ask the Solicitor General for Ireland whether any steps have yet been taken to bring about an agreement between the Local Government Board and the Roscommon Board of Guardians as to the question of the contributory area for the waterworks, so that the people of Roscommon may obtain what is admitted to be a much-needed water supply for the town; and, in the event of no such agreement being arrived at, what steps can be taken to prevent the people of the town being deprived indefinitely of the water supply?


The Local Government Board have not changed their views as to the contributory area on which the town of Roscommon should be charged. The Local Government Board having determined the area of charge, the responsibility of providing the water supply rests upon the Sanitary Authorities.
