HC Deb 01 July 1902 vol 110 c423

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that a new series of coloured ordnance survey maps for England, Scotland, and Wales, on the scale of four miles to the inch, has been prepared for publication; and, whether, seeing that provision has not been made for the, publication of a similar series for Ireland, he can state whether any representations have been made on the subject with a view to remedying this inequality; and, if so, what steps does he propose to take.


The hon. Gentleman has been misinformed. Provision has been made for the publication of a similar map for Ireland, but its completion had necessarily to await the revision of the one-inch survey. I hope, however, that the publication of the quarter-inch map may be begun next year.
