HC Deb 02 April 1900 vol 81 c952

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Irish Local Government Board has received a petition from the inhabitants of Scariff in connection with the water supply scheme for that district; and what is being done in the matter.

MR. ATKINSON (for Mr. G. W. Balfour)

The petition referred to has been received. The Local Government Board will issue orders for a local inquiry into the matter in pursuance of Section 15 of the Public Health Act of 1896.
