§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he win state what steps are taken to provide for the drainage of the River Riffey, in consequence of the overflow of which last year two mill were drowned near Edgeworths-town.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
I have nothing to add to my reply to the hon. Member's previous Question of the 24th February on the same subject,† except to say that I have ascertained that the flooding of the townlands named in that Question is not due to any defects in the condition of the adjoining drainage district of Inny, for which the trustees would be responsible.
§ MR J. P. FARRELL
Will the right hon. Gentleman refer this matter to the Board of Works, so that an inspector may visit the place?
