§ MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture if he can state in what condition of preparation are the 1/2 500 scale maps of North Kerry, and especially those in connection with the districts of Newtowmsandes and Tarbert; and whether he can say how soon it is expected the appointed agent in Tralee will have the maps on sale?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE (Mr. W. H. LONG,) Liverpool, West Derby
The whole of 392 north Kerry has been surveyed on the 25-inch scale, and the sheets are now in various stages for drawing and publication. Those which comprise Tarbert and Newtownsandes will be published about the end of September, and will then be available for sale by the agent in Tralee.
§ MR. FLAVIN
Can the right honourable Gentleman say why, seeing that this portion of Kerry has been surveyed for the past 12 months, the maps have not been printed?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE
So far as I know there has been no delay that could have been avoided. I will inquire if there are any circumstances in the case with which I am not acquainted.
