HC Deb 07 December 1911 vol 32 c1761W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he will state the number of labourers' cottages in Cork county in which the applicants made representations asking to be provided with the additional half-acre allotment; and how many of such applications were rejected by Local Government Board inspectors after holding local inquiries?


The records of the Local Government Board do not show the number of cases in which tenants of labourers' cottages may have applied to rural district councils for additional half-acre allotments. The number, however, of additional plots proposed in the schemes submitted to the Board by the rural district councils in county Cork is 3,775, the number not finally authorised being 1,355.
