HC Deb 12 May 1904 vol 134 cc1160-1

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Town Commissioners of Kilkee have taken advantage of The Local Government Act, 1890, to be constituted an urban council; and, if not, whether he can say what body has legal authority over the the sanitary affairs of Kilkee and powers to appoint town inspectors and other officers.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The reply to the first part of the Question is in the negative. The sanitary authority is the Kilrush Rural District Council under whose control are the sanitary and sanitary sub-officers. The Town Commissioners, as such, are empowered to appoint a town surveyor, inspector of nuisances, clerk, collector, etc.
