§ MR. DONAL SULLIVAN
On behalf of the honourable Member for Cork, I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture whether, in view of the fact that the city of Cork has been re-surveyed and an ordnance map published on the 25-inch scale, there is any reason why a revised map on the 6-inch scale should not be immediately published; and whether he will state the names of ill towns and cities in the United King- 43 dom having a population of 80,000 and upwards in which there has been no re-publication of the 6-inch ordnance map since 1876?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE
The honourable Member is not correctly informed as to the position in regard to the Ordnance Survey maps of Cork. The re-survey of Ireland on the 25-inch scale has not yet reached that city, and no maps on that scale are, therefore, available for reduction to the 6-inch scale. There are 11 towns in the United Kingdom, having a population of 80,000 or upwards, the 6-inch maps of which have not, as yet, been republished since 1876.
