§ 19. Mr. CRUMLEY
asked the Chief Secretary if he can see his way to introduce a short Bill to amend the Lough Erne Act, providing for the prevention of the annual flooding of thousands of acres of land, the consequent saving of crops, and increase in food supplies?
§ Mr. CRUMLEY
Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman bring in a Bill, to which there is no opposition, to safeguard those crops?
§ 25. Mr. O'DOWD
asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that, owing to the continuous rains of the past three months and partly owing to the stoppage of the drainage work commenced some time ago on the Owenmore River, in the county Sligo, hundreds of acres of valuable oat, potatoes, and hay crops have been destroyed by the flooding of that river; and, if so, will he say whether the work of drainage on the Owenmore will be resumed, so as to prevent a recurrence of these disasters during the coming year?
