31.

asked the Minister for Local Government what the present position is in regard to the Compulsory Purchase Order for the acquisition of the site declared to be a clearance area at Pound Lane, Castleisland, County Kerry, which has been submitted to him for adjudication; and when a decision is likely to be reached by him on this matter.

The Castleisland (Pound Lane) Labourers Act Scheme, 1961, has been examined and found not to be drafted in accordance with the legal and technical requirements with which such a Compulsory Purchase Order must comply before it is made the subject of a Public Inquiry. I have, accordingly, made an Order annulling this Compulsory Purchase Order.
