§ 7. Mr. FFRENCH
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he has received a petition from the ratepayers of the village of Cullenstown, South Wexford, asking for the erection of a public pump whether he is aware that the doctor for the district states that their present supply of water is highly dangerous for human use and to the public health generally; that the doctor has made several reports on this matter urging the necessity for a supply of pure water; and if he can say if the local authority is prepared to erect a public pump?
§ Mr. SHORTT
The answer to the first, second, and third parts of the question is in the affirmative. I am informed that at the last meeting of the rural district council the matter was referred to the local councillors and the clerk of works for consideration and report.
