§ MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, if the inquiry hold on the 16th instant at Dunfanaghy, county Donegal, to consider applications for labourers' cottages and allotments in the Creelough Division of the Dunfanaghy Union has resulted in showing that there is no necessity for such cottages; and, if not, can he say what the result of the inquiry has been.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Local Government Board's inspector has not yet arrived at his decision respecting the several applications which came before him at the inquiry, as he must await the transcript of the shorthand notes of the evidence. The result of the inquiry will be communicated to the rural district council in due course.
