HC Deb 04 May 1904 vol 134 c392
MR. O'SHAUGHNESSY (Limerick, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, if he can state whether the same expense will be incurred in the preparation of a scheme for the building of labourers' cottages under the Labourers (Ireland) Bill as under existing Acts; and. if not, in what particulars are the expenses cheapened.


It is clear that considerable expense will be saved in the case of schemes for allotments where land is not to be taken compulsorily. It is hoped that under the provisions of the Bill expense will be saved in other cases. I am prepared to favourably consider any suggestion which may be made for the furtherance of this object during the stages of the Bill.
