HC Deb 23 June 1899 vol 73 c453

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the residue of money borrowed for the use of certain defined areas in the poor law union of Downpatrick, and expended in those areas, has been ordered by the Local Government Board to be levied on the entire rural district, although the Downpatrick Board of Guardians is stated to have disapproved of the proposed order and the Rural District Council has protested against it; whether it is possible to meet the wishes of the Council in this matter; and whether in future similar expenditure may or must be levied 0ff the entire rural districts.


In answer to this question I would refer my hon. and learned friend to the reply given by me yesterday to a similar question put by the hon. Member for South Donegal respecting the area of charge in respect of the Bundoran Water Works.
