HC Deb 29 April 1892 vol 3 c1653

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether any, and, if so, what, steps have been taken to remedy the unsanitary condition of houses in the Kilbrittain district of the Bandon Union; and whether the Local Government Board will consider the application of Dr. Shorter, of Kilbrittain, to insist on the Bandon Board of Guardians appointing a third relieving officer, and thus prevent the frequently reported unsanitary condition of houses in the Union?


The Board of Guardians of the Bandon Union had under consideration, on the 13th inst., a complaint made by the Medical Officer mentioned, in reference to the unsanitary condition of some houses in his district. The sanitary sub-officer reported that he had already served notices on the offending parties, and the Guardians thereupon directed that he should serve fresh notices requiring the premises complained of to be put in order within 14 days. The Guardians had on a previous occasion under consideration the question of appointing a third relieving officer. This question appears to come up for consideration early next month.
