HC Deb 24 July 1899 vol 75 c86

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received a memorial from the Castlerea Rural District Council on the subject of the sanitary charges of the towns of Castlerea and Ballaghadereen; whether he is aware that the spreading of these charges over the entire rural district, instead of as heretofore only on the places concerned and receiving benefit, has created a very strong feeling amongst the members of the council and the ratepayers generally; and whether he will comply with the desire of the council and the ratepayers in favour of making the sanitary expenses excluded charges, and leviable only upon the places receiving advantages from the works in connection with which they were incurred.


The memorial referred to in the first paragraph has been received. A Supplementary Order was issued on the 17th instant, restoring the former areas of charge for special expenses in certain cases, which include the Castlerea and Ballaghadereen Water Supply and Sewerage schemes.
