§ 19. Mr. GINNELL
asked, seeing that the Department of Agriculture is not heeding the overflow of Irish rivers and lakes this season, whether any Irish Department is recording the area of arable land submerged and the amount of the loss or any species of loss sustained thereby?
§ Mr. GINNELL
Is this big matter of the submerging of arable land matter of such indifference to the Chief Secretary that he will not inquire about it?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
No, I do not say that for a moment. We have kept very careful records of the rise and fall of the waters in the Shannon and other parts of Ireland.
