HC Deb 25 June 1902 vol 110 cc9-10
MR. LUNDON (Limerick, E.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether he is aware that the application of Michael Norris, of Annagh, in the rural district of Galbally, county Limerick, No. 2 District Council of Mitchelstown, under the Labourers (Ireland) Acts, was refused, although the officer presiding at the inquiry in Mitchelstown had previously recommended that Norris should get a cottage and plot; that the said cottage was to be built on a plot owned by Norris himself; that the passage into said plot has lately been repaired at the public expense; that Norris has a right of way to his land as well as two other farmers; and that the alleged cause of refusal was that the landlord and the agent had not been communicated with: And, will he consider the matter with a view to an order being made in favour of Norris.

(Answer.) The application has not been refused; it was recommended conditionally on the consents of owner and occupier being obtained. The county council were requested last July to procure these consents but have not yet done so.—(Irish Office).
