HC Deb 26 November 1908 vol 197 c696

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will ascertain from the Labour Department of the Local Government Board the grounds upon which the claim of John McGrath for a labourer's cottage and acre plot on the farm of eighty acres occupied by Mr. John Therry, J.P., Springvale, Kildorrery, County Cork, has been rejected, seeing that the house occupied by John McGrath and his family of ten was condemned as unfit for human habitation by Dr. Browne, Local Government Board inspector, and by Dr. Buckley, district medical officer, and that the application of John McGrath was sanctioned by an inspector of the Local Government Board at an inquiry held at Mitchelstown last March; and whether he will take any action in the the matter.


The Local Government Board have no information as to the grounds of the County Court Judge's decision in this case. That decision is final.
