HC Deb 08 August 1901 vol 99 cc69-70
MR. LUNDON (Limerick, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that on the occasion of the inquiry lately held in the No. 1 District Council of Limerick in regard to the 7th Scheme for the erection of cottages under the Labourers Acts little consideration was given to the labourers' applications, on the grounds that some of the houses of these labourers had not been pronounced by the doctors as insanitary; and, seeing that this was caused by the fact that they had been temporarily living in the houses of farmers' herdsmen in which they had no permanent right of occupation, will he take action to have those applications reconsidered.


The inspector's report of the inquiry, which was only held on the 11th July, has not yet been received. Consequently, I am not in a position to say what evidence was adduced, or to anticipate the recommendations of the inspector. But I will communicate with the hon. Member when the report is received.
