HC Deb 10 May 1897 vol 49 c114

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, what progress has been made towards carrying out the scheme for the erection of labourers' cottages in Kells, County of Meath?


Loans for the erection of 75 cottages in this Union were sanctioned by the Local Government Board in July 1896, and there are already built in the Union, under previous schemes, 231 cottages. The Board are informed by the Clerk of the Union that possession has been obtained of 41 out of the 75 sites included in the last scheme, and that contracts have been entered into by the Guardians for the erection of 20 of the cottages. Steps are also being taken by them to obtain possession of the remaining sites to enable the erection of the cottages to be proceeded with.
