HC Deb 03 December 1906 vol 166 c558

To ask Mr. Attorney-General for Ireland if he will state the names of the different drainage boards in Ireland, saying when, and how they were constituted, and whence they derive their powers.

(Answered by Mr. Runciman.) I understand that there are 121 drainage districts constituted under the Act 5 and 6 Vic, c. 89, and amending Acts, and 63 districts constituted under the Act 20 and 27 Vic, c. 88. To give their names and dates would exceed the limits of an Answer to a Question; but the honourable Member will find them, as regards the first class, in the Report of the Commissioners of Public Works for 1863–4; and, as regards the second, in their Report for 1904–5.
