§ Mr. J. P. FARRELL
asked whether the Development Commissioners have promised a £1,250 grant to county Longford, contingent upon the county council finding a similar sum, to make the roads between certain points in county Longford; whether a similar condition is being imposed on every other county to which a grant is being made; and, if not, why exception should be made in the case of county Longford?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
The Road Board have intimated to County Longford that they are prepared to grant £1,250 as a contribution to road improvement works estimated to cost £2,500. This contribution is practically similar to contributions to works in other Irish counties.
