HC Deb 23 July 1914 vol 65 c654W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that Charles Carrigan, a labourer residing in the town-land of Clontymare, Kinglas electoral division, made application to the rural district council of Enniskillen in March, 1913, for a labourer's cottage and was refused on the ground that there were some vacant houses; and, seeing that no person could live in these houses, will he direct the Local Government Board to have a house built for this man?


The facts are as stated in the first part of the question. The Local Government Board have no power to comply with the suggestion made by the hon. Member. It is, however, open to Carrigan to represent all the circumstances of his case to the rural district council, with a view to their including a cottage for him in any new scheme they may propose to make under the Labourers Acts.
