HC Deb 07 July 1904 vol 137 c965
MR. O'DOWD (Sligo, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether any portion of the Development Grant Fund will be allocated for river drainage purposes in Ireland; and, if so, whether a small grant from that fund will be given for the drainage of the Owenmore.


Provision is made in the Development Grant Estimate for a charge in respect of the drainage of the Bann, the reasons for which I have explained. I am not prepared to impose on the Estimate any additional charge for the purposes of arterial drainage.

MR. JOHN REDMOND (Waterford)

Can the right hon. Gentleman give us any information as to the Estimate.


It is being prepared.
