HC Deb 31 March 1898 vol 55 cc1486-7

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland (1) whether memorials have been received by the Congested Districts Board and the Board of Works from the residents in the Rinn and Black River Drainage District in South Leitrim as to the great losses caused them by the periodical flooding of this tributary river; (2) what has been the nature of the replies to the memorials; and (3) what steps will be taken to have the matter remedied?


A memorial has been received by the Commissioners of Public Works of the nature indicated in the first paragraph, and the Commissioners have replied in the terms of my answer to the hon. Member's previous Question of the 17th February last on the subject.
