HC Deb 29 October 1906 vol 163 cc675-6
MR. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick)

To ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether, in connection with the ordnance survey in Ireland, a very large number of maps of one-inch scale and four-inch scale are being procured from Southampton; and whether work which could be more conveniently and economically done in Ireland has been transferred to Southampton.

(Answered by Sir Edward Strachey.) The coloured editions of the one-inch and one quarter-inch maps are printed at Southampton, but no work has been transferred to Southampton which could be done more conveniently and economically in Ireland.
