HC Deb 05 February 1891 vol 350 c24
MR. W. A. MACDONALD (Queen's Co., Ossory)

I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether he has received the copy of a resolution passed by the Mountmellick Board of Guardians, praying the Government to undertake the drainage of the River Barrow, and basing their request on the unhealthy condition of the towns through which the river flows, and the general want of employment. among the people; whether he is aware that great poverty exists in Mountmellick and the neighbouring district among persons who are in want of work and cannot obtain it; and whether, in view of the forward state of Government business, he will re-introduce his Bill for the drainage of the Barrow?


I have not received a copy of the resolution, but will make inquiry.

Forward to
