§ MR. KENDAL O'BRIEN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state when it is proposed to hold the Local Government Board inquiry into the improvement scheme under the Labourers Acts, formulated by the Tipperary, No. 1, Rural District Council, nearly three years ago; and will he explain the cause of delay in the holding of this inquiry.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The inquiry will be held on the 17th April. The petition for confirmation of the scheme was only received by the Board in December last. Even then the documents were incomplete and discrepancies were found to exist, which have engaged the attention of the District Council in the interval.
