Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Shannonbridge Water and Sewerage Scheme.

46.

asked the Minister for Local Government when the water and sewerage scheme will be provided for Shannonbridge, Offaly; and if he has any proposals from the local authority on the matter.

As the scheme referred to by the Deputy is at an early stage of planning, I am not in a position to say when it will be provided. The appointment of a Consulting Engineer for the scheme was approved on the 25th May, 1961. There are no proposals from the local authority on the matter before my Department at present.
