§ Mr. BOLAND
asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that the people of Dunloe Upper, Cullina Upper, and Dirre, near Beaufort, are very much handicapped by the absence of a suitable road leading into their holdings, and that if the old Board of Works road from Dunloe were 2939W improved it would benefit about eighty families; and whether the Congested Districts Board or other authority will undertake the necessary improvement?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
No representations have been made to the Congested Districts Board with regard to the road referred to. It is not the duty of the Board to make or repair roads except in connection with improvement works carried out on estates purchased by them. The matter would appear to be one for the county council who are specially empowered to make and maintain roads.
