HC Deb 31 March 1910 vol 15 cc1587-8W

asked the amount of money spent by the Congested Districts Board between the date of the formation of the Board and the end of March, 1909, in the several counties of Ireland in which the Congested Districts Board has operated, placing opposite each county the total amount spent, without giving details, on marine works, on inland works, namely, roads, bridges, etc., on parish committee grants, on lands purchased by the Congested Districts Board in non-congested districts, on old and new holdings of all persons migrated to new holdings during the year ended 31st March, 1909, on improvement works and other heads on estates purchased by the Board up to 31st March, 1909, and on the purchase of estates and farms for enlargement of holdings and migration prior to the Act of 1903 and after the passing of the Act of 1903?


It would not be possible to present an account of the entire expenditure of the Congested Districts Board in the form suggested by the hon. Member without withdrawing the official staff of the Board from their ordinary duties. Full particulars of the Board's expenditure will be found in their Annual Reports and the Appendices thereto, which have been presented to Parliament.
