§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND (Clare, E.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the flooding of a considerable area, in consequence of the overflowing of the Scariff River, in county Clare; and whether, in view of the loss entailed by these floods on the people of the district, the Government will take some steps to help the people to institute some drainage works.
(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) Representations have been made to me in this matter. The Board of Works engineer will make an inspection of the district as soon as his other engagements permit.
