HC Deb 23 September 1909 vol 11 cc816-7W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he is aware that, four years ago, a grant of £100 was made to Messrs. Joseph Brett and James Brett for the building of a road on the Cloonball farm, Mayo Abbey electoral division, Claremorris union, county Mayo; that after this lapse of time only one-half of the road is yet made; and that interest has been charged from the first on this sum by the Estates Commissioners; and, if so, will he say when the Commissioners purpose finishing this work?


The Estates Commissioners inform me that the holdings in question were vested in the tenants on 1st August, 1907, when the sum sanctioned for improvements had all been expended, and that interest on the amount sanctioned and expended was only charged as from that date.
