HC Deb 30 November 1893 vol 19 c96
MR. M. AUSTIN (Limerick, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that in February of last year the Guardians of the Listowel Union promoted a. scheme for the erection of labourers' cottages; that under this scheme a. certain number were to be built in the Glin Division; and that the sanitary officer has condemned the present dwellings in the said Division; and what action has been taken by the Local Government Board to carry into effect the wishes of the Guardians?


In February last the Listowel Guardians-applied to the Local Government Board for confirmation of improvident scheme proposing the erection of 173 cottages in the Union, including 14 in the Glin Electoral Division. The sanitary officer had certified eight of the existing dwellings in this Division to be unfit for habitation. The Board's Inspector, after inquiry, recommended the erection of 99 cottages in the Union, including seven in the Glin Division, and on the 22nd instant the Board issued a Provisional Order embodying their Inspector's recommendation.
