HC Deb 18 April 1910 vol 16 c1700

asked whether any of the moneys now at the disposal of the Congested Districts Board will be set apart for the promotion of industries in some of the small towns in the West of Ireland from which so many able-bodied and energetic young men and women have to emigrate because of the want of any remunerative employment?


Negotiations are already in progress for giving substantial assistance in one case, and the Congested Districts Board are anxious to assist suitable industries in congested districts so far as their means permit.
