HC Deb 03 July 1899 vol 73 cc1281-2

On behalf of the hon. Member for South Roscommon, I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the fact that the Board of Works Inspector (Land Improvement Branch) for a great portion of the County of Roscommon resides at Enniskillen, in the County of Fermanagh, far distant from Roscommon, is the cause of grave inconvenience to applicants for loans, inasmuch as the inspector does not sometimes visit the farms for upwards of a month after the claims are filed and the fee paid at the Works Office, Dublin; and whether he will cause some change to be made for the better accommodation of the public.


The district of the Land Loans Inspector who is stationed at Enniskillen does not include any portion of the County of Roscommon. The inspection of land loans in Roscommon is performed by inspectors stationed at Ballinasloe and Mullingar.
