MR. O'CONNOR POWER
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, What steps, if any, the Irish Local Government Board intend to take with a view to relieving the distress of the small farmers in the Castlebar Union, which has been brought under the notice 1011 of the Board by the Poor Law Guardians of Castlebar and the Catholic Clergy of the district?
§ MR. W. E. FORSTER
The Local Government Board have under their consideration proposals for proceeding with various public works, the estimated cost of which amounts to a large sum. The Board will consult their Inspector before deciding which of the works should be proceeded with. A decision will be arrived at with as little delay as possible.
