§ 83. Mr. FITZPATRICK
asked the Minister of Munitions if he will consider the possibility of establishing a munition factory at Mountmellick, Queen's County, where there are many disused stores and factories of a suitable kind which could be acquired by the Government much more cheaply than buildings of a similar class in larger towns in Ireland; and if he is aware that Mountmellick is within 50 miles of Dublin, with which it is connected by both rail and canal?
§ Sir W. EVANS
The possibility of making use of the buildings referred to shall be considered, but I am afraid I cannot hold out any hope of the establishment of a factory at Mountmellick.
