HC Deb 07 April 1892 vol 3 c866

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland what decision have the Board for the Congested Districts arrived at in reference to the memorials and resolutions from various localities in West Clare which some time since were referred to them?


The County of Clare does not come within the definition of a Congested Districts County as contained in the 36th section of the Purchase of Land (Ireland) Act, 1891, and there is, therefore, no power to schedule as congested the localities referred to. The applicants have been so informed by the Congested Districts Board.
