HC Deb 01 March 1904 vol 130 cc1362-3

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Congested Districts Board voted £250 towards the. construction of the Caragh Lake road, county Kerry, on the condition that the subsidy would be availed of before next May, and that the Killarney Rural District Council voted a similar amount; and, if so, will he say what steps will be taken to have this work carried out.


Yes, Sir; the Congested Districts Board offered to contribute this amount towards the construction of the road in question. It has since been ascertained, however, that the road is not a public road within the meaning of the statute and that any expenditure on it out of the rates would be liable to disallowance by the Auditor. The Board's contribution, in the circumstances, will be applied to another road near Caragh lake. Its acceptance will be open for two years from the date of the grant.
