HC Deb 27 January 1902 vol 101 c970
MR. KENDAL O'BRIEN (Tipperary, Mid.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether he is aware that inconvenience and expense are caused to county and district councils and their officers in Ireland owing to the Ordnance Department publishing ordnance maps to the scale of one inch to the mile without showing on the same the boundaries of the rural and urban districts, although before the passing of the Local Govern-(Ireland) Act, 1898, these maps were always marked with the grand jury fiscal areas, viz., the baronies: and whether, seeing that these have been now omitted, he will approach the Ordnance Department at an early date with the view of securing that the rural district and urban boundaries shall be marked on all new ordnance maps with as little delay as possible.


This Question seems to be put under a misapprehension. I am informed that the boundaries of Counties, Rural and Urban Districts, and County Boroughs are distinctly marked on the new series of Ordnance Maps now being published, on the scale of one inch to a mile.
