§ MR. SHEEHAN (Cork Co., Mid.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether he is aware that in the second scheme of labourers' cottages promoted by the then Macroom Board of Guardians one application was sanctioned on the lands of a farmer named Hinchion, in the Clonmayle Electoral Division; that the cottage was let out to contract about 12 years ago. but that the contractor failed to erect it; and about a year and a half since it was again let to contract and that the contractor signed the necessary bonds, but has not yet commenced to build on the site: and will he explain the cause of the delay in the erection of this cottage, and state what steps the Local Government Board will take to compel its immediate erection.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The Board has called upon the District Council for a statement of the facts of this case.
