HC Deb 02 June 1919 vol 116 c1693W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he is aware that there is in Dublin a serious shortage of street sanitary accommodation, especially for women; and will he in any town-planning schemes for Ireland make it mandatory that each local authority shall provide and maintain for public use street, sanitary accommodation suitable to the needs of the district which it controls?


This matter has been occupying the attention of the Dublin Corporation for some years, and tentative measures for meeting the need have already been adopted. Further proposals have recently been submitted to the reconstruction committee of the corporation. The matter does not come within the scope of town-planning, but it is one for the local authority in their capacity as a sanitary authority.
