Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - West Galway Electricity Supply.

46.

asked the Minister for Transport and Power the next areas in priority for supply of ESB current in West Galway.

I am informed by the Electricity Supply Board that all rural areas in West Galway have had an opportunity of taking supply. As I informed the Deputy in my reply to his question of 2nd April, 1963, it is not possible to state an order of priority for the recanvassing of individual areas.

However, I am informed by the Electricity Supply Board that two areas, Spiddal and Ardrahan rural areas, have recently been recanvassed and that work on the further development of these areas will shortly commence.

Would the Minister indicate the second area he mentioned?

The question referred to West Galway.

Those are the only areas in Galway where I can say it is proceeding.
