HC Deb 04 August 1890 vol 347 cc1756-7
MR. NOLAN) (Louth, N.

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been drawn to the insanitary condition of a large number of labourers' cottages at Clogherhead, County Louth, and to the difficulty of dealing with them, owing to the absence of other houses of any kind available for the labourers in the neighbourhood; and whether, under the circumstances, he will instruct the Local Government Board to confer with the Local Sanitary Authority, with a view to providing suitable accommodation for these people before they are driven from their present dwellings?


The insanitary condition of the village referred to has, I am informed, been for some months engaging the attention of the Drogheda Board of Guardians. They have already taken steps to deal with the matter, and state that it shall continue to have their attention until the village is improved.
