§ MR. BOLAND (Kerry, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that no provision has been made in the congested division of Curraghmore, near Killorglin, for the acquisition, at a reduced price, of seed potatoes, seed oats, and lime; and whether, in view of the fact that owing to the representations of Mr. Jeremiah Breen, R.D.C. for this division, the scheme of supplying lime at a reduced rate was adopted by the Congested Districts Board, he will see that the advantages conferred on the neighbouring districts of Killorglin and Glenbeigh are given to the Curraghmore district.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The Local Government Board have inquired into the circumstances of this locality, and are satisfied that no exceptional distress exists in it. The Department of Agriculture have supplied seeds and manures for a number of demonstration plots in the district of Killorglin, and it is hoped that the result will be to encourage the introduction of fresh seeds and the use of suitable manures. The 1519 arrangements for the present year have been completed and cannot now be extended. The Congested Districts Board are not prepared to make arrangements for supplying lime at a reduced rate in the Curraghmore division.
