HC Deb 04 August 1904 vol 139 cc968-9

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Board ‡ See (4) Debates, cxxxviii., 1450. of Works has examined a portion of the Scariff River with a view to its drainage; and, if so, whether instructions will be given to have the entire river examined.

(Answered by Mr. Victor Cavendish.) A portion of the Scariff River was examined by one of the engineers of the Board of Works; but, as there is no question of the formation of a drainage board, nor of the expenditure of public money on the regulation of the river, no further action will be taken.
