§ MR. CLANCY (Dublin County, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, with reference to his recent statement that he had appointed a Committee of experts to inquire into the subject of arterial drainage in Ireland, whether he has† See page 902.1341 taken care that the Committee shall consist of or shall include Irish engineers who know the country, or have been engaged in drainage and similar works in that country.
§ MR. WALTER LONG
I hope to be in a position to announce the names of the members of the Commission and the terms of reference in the course of a few days. Perhaps the hon. and learned Member will repeat his Question on Wednesday next.
§ MR. CLANCY
Bat surely the right hon. Gentleman can say if any Irish engineers will be appointed on it.
