HC Deb 01 June 1894 vol 25 cc169-70
MR. TULLY (Leitrim, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state how many applications for loans, under "The Irish Reproductive Loan Fund Amendment Act, 1883," have been received from bodies of Town Commissioners in the Counties of Roscommon and Tipperary; what sum has been advanced to the Roscommon Town Commissioners under this Act; whether it will be possible for the Roscommon Town Commissioners to apply for fresh loans under the Act; and whether he can state what are the reasons which caused the Board of Works, and latterly the Congested Districts Board, to refuse the applications of the Boyle Town Commissioners for loans under this Act for works of public utility, such as the building of a Town Hall and the erection of artisans' dwellings, seeing that under Sub-section 5, Section 35, of "The Land Purchase (Ireland) Act, 1891," the Irish Reproductive Loan Fund is applicable only in any county in which the fund was before the passing of that Act applicable?


I called for a Report on this question yesterday, but have not yet received it. Will the hon. Gentleman be good enough to repeat the question on Monday?
