§ Mr. O'MALLEY
asked the Chief Secretary if, in view of the fact that the county of Galway was not directly represented on the Congested Districts Board, he would take steps 966 to see that the districts in the county of Galway, especially Connemara, which was the largest, the most congested, and the poorer district in the whole of Ireland, received that attention and consideration from the Board that they deserved; and if he would state when the Board would direct its attention to the necessities of Connemara?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Congested Districts Board are alive to the condition of the inhabitants of Connemara. Steps have already been taken with the object of effecting an improvement, and further measures are in contemplation.
