HC Deb 23 September 1909 vol 11 c817W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that Mr. M. Shiel, of Lissaniska, Loughrea, took out a contract under the Loughrea District Council, which was finally passed by the council on 21st October, 1908, to construct a new road for the accommodation of the public in the district of Barratoor, Ballinakill, Loughrea, and he was directed by the county surveyor not to proceed with the work until such time as the Board of Works has issued a loan to the county council for the purpose; and, having regard to the need of constructing the road immediately, whether he will communicate with the Board of Works and ask for an explanation as to why the loan has not been made before this?


I am informed by the Board of Works that they are awaiting a reply from the county council to their request, made on 31st August last, to be furnished with the necessary legal proof that the county council had approved of the expenditure in question.
