HC Deb 26 May 1903 vol 122 cc1795-6

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state the estimated cost for the new works in Boyle No. 1 Rural District for the three years ending 1st April, 1902; how much of this estimated cost was actually paid for works executed; whether the charge was a district or a county charge, and whether, seeing that the amount so expended exceeded the amount spent by the Grand Jury of County Roscommon in the district for the three years prior to the coming into operation of the Local Government (Ireland) Act, 1898, he will state how much of the increase is due to the adoption of the principle of main roads by Roscommon County Council.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The estimated cost of new works in this district in the period stated was £1,712 13s. The amount expended was £382 15s., and was raised off the district. No increase in the cost of new works resulted from the adoption of the main road scheme by the County Council.
