HC Deb 05 November 1902 vol 114 cc145-6

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether lie has received from the Boyle No. 2 District Council a resolution complaining that the amount of the supplemental loan sanctioned by the Treasury under the Labourers (Ireland) Acts has not been issued by the Board of Works; and whether, as the contractors, who have got final certificates from the engineer for their work, are now threatening legal proceedings for the balance due to them, he will direct that this loan shall be issued by the Board of Works without further delay.


The Commissioners of Public Works are not responsible for any delay that has taken place in the issue of this loan. The District Council has not yet furnished a conveyance of some of the land required, and until this has been done the mortgage deed securing the loan cannot be completed.
