HC Deb 01 March 1909 vol 1 c1228W

asked the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether all the Irish Ordnance survey maps being now revised are being published eliminating the names of sites of Irish antiquities; if so, under whose authority this is being done, and with what object the names in Old English characters are being eliminated; and whether he can state the number of maps published under the altered conditions and the county localities to which these maps refer?


The Board are not aware that any of the names of sites of Irish antiquities, if properly authenticated, have been eliminated from the new or revised Ordnance Survey maps now being published. If any such omission has occurred and the matter is brought to our notice the Board will be glad to investigate it.
