HC Deb 19 November 1914 vol 68 c557
5. Mr. KELLY

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland what was the amount of the original Grant to the Donegal County Council for sanatoria buildings under the National Insurance Act; have any deductions been made from that amount; if so, for what purpose; and will the Local Government Board consider the fact that a smaller sum than that originally granted is quite inadequate to allow the council to finance the most moderate building scheme in conformity with the requirements of the Act?


The amount of money at present earmarked for county Donegal from the Sanatorium Grant on a population basis is £4,606, and up to the present the only liabilities, so far as the Local Government Board are aware, are for twenty beds at Peamount Sanatorium. The Board, therefore, see no reason to doubt that the council will have an ample margin for the completion of the moderate building scheme at Letterkenny which is before the council at present.
