Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Fethard Water Supply Scheme.

asked the Minister for Local Government what is the cause of the delay in having the water scheme for the Fethard area, including Drangan-Killenaule, advertised for tender.

Final contract documents for the Fethard regional water supply scheme were received in my Department within the last three weeks and were approved on 3rd instant. The local authority may now invite tenders for the work, provided any necessary lands and water rights are available for acquisition by agreement.
