§ MR. HAYDEN (Roscommon, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the scheme under the Labourers Acts promoted by the Castlerea Rural District Council is delayed by reason of the fact that no arbitrator has been appointed by the Local Government Board; whether he will call upon the latter body immediately to make such appointment; and whether he will state when this scheme was commenced.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. WYNDHAM,) Dover
The council did not make application for the appointment of an arbitrator until the 20th February. The Board's Order appointing him was made on Monday last. The improvement scheme was made by the council in November, 1901.
