§ MR. O'KELLY (Mayo, N.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Belmullet District Council have repeatedly impressed on the Local Government Board the necessity of supplying seed oats in that union; and whether, in view of the almost total failure of the crop in Belmullet Union last year, he will urge the Local Government Board to reconsider their decision with a view to granting the request of the Belmullet Council.
(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) Two resolutions of the Belmullet guardians to the effect mentioned have been received by the Local Government Board. The Board are satisfied that no necessity exists for including seed oats in the seed supply operations of this year.
