HC Deb 07 May 1901 vol 93 cc946-7
MR. M'FADDEN (Donegal, E.)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture whether the proceedings of the Ordnance Survey of Ireland, embracing a large amount of historical geological, botanical, and every species of local information relating to every parish in Ireland, are still in manuscript stowed away in Dublin archives; and whether, having regard to their importance, His Majesty's Government will proceed to their publication, as was originally intended.


All these papers were handed over to the Irish Academy at various dates between 1860 and 1890, and the Ordnance Survey Department has now no control over them.
