HC Deb 13 June 1902 vol 109 c611
DR. THOMPSON (Monaghan, N.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he will explain why the Local Government Board for Ireland, notwithstanding the petition of the inhabitants, have refused to sanction the erection of a pump for the supply of water to the inhabitants of the village of Drum, in County Monaghan; and has he received official reports showing that cases of fever have occurred in consequence.

(Answer.) The Board has not refused to sanction the erection of a pump at Drum; on the contrary, it has urged the District Council to take steps for the improvement of the water supply of the locality. The Medical Officer of Health has made no report to the effect stated at the end of the Question.—(Irish Office.)
