HC Deb 23 April 1917 vol 92 c2062W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office, with reference to his statement in a letter, dated the 16th March and addressed to the Member for North Dublin, that a portion of the main road leading to the Curragh Camp to Dublin is being repaired and that the War Office is contributing about half the cost of the repairs, whether any part of the portion referred to is situated in the county of Dublin; and, if not, whether the War Office will also contribute to the cost of the portion of the road situated in the county of Dublin, which, owing to military traffic, is equally in urgent need of repair?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. In regard to the second part, I understand that the military authorities have not considered the state of the road in county Dublin to require the treatment which has been applied to this and certain other roads outside that county. If the local authorities are dissatisfied with the present position they should communicate with the Road Board.
