HC Deb 19 May 1908 vol 189 cc85-6
MR. JOHN O'CONNOR (Kildare, N)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has yet considered the scheme of Messrs. Glover and white for the drainage of the river Barrow; whether the same was submitted to the Board of Works, and, if so, has it reported thereupon; and is he now in a position to say what the intention of the Government is in respect to the said scheme, or any other, for the purpose of the drainage of the River Barrow.


The Report of the Board of Works upon the scheme of Messrs. Glover and White has been received and is under consideration. The matter is one of much complexity, but a decision will be arrived at with as little delay as possible.
