§ MR. ARTHUR O'CONNOR
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If he can state the present condition of the drainage works at Killaloe, the number of men in daily employment, and the date at which the officials in charge expect the works to be completed?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
This is not a Question for the Irish Government. It should be addressed to the Secretary to the Treasury.
§ Mr. COURTNEY
As this Question relates to the Board of Works, I beg to answer it on behalf of the Treasury. About three-fourths of the work at Killaloe sluices has been finished. Forty-six men on an average are employed there, which is as many as the nature of the works admit of. It is expected that the works will be completed in August next.
