§ MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state the cause of the delay in the issuing of the loan for the building of the labourers' cottages in Granard Union under their last Labourers Act scheme; and, seeing that all the formulas of the law have been complied with, will he represent to the Board of Works the necessity of issuing this loan forthwith.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The loan was sanctioned by the Treasury in May. Any subsequent delay has arisen in connection with the preparation of the requisite mortgage deed, which was only received yesterday from the District Council. If this is found to be in order, the first instalment of the loan will at once issue.
