Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers (Resumed). - Limerick Borough Extension.

273.

asked the Minister for Local Government if any proposals have been submitted to him for the extension of Limerick borough into County Clare.

I have received no such proposals. Recent Press reports that plans had been sent to my Department were not correct.

Could we have some information as to why the Minister for Local Government is not present?

The Minister was at a public function before the Deputy took over.

Is he not getting the necessary regulations in order for a general election?

(Interruptions.)

In relation to Question No. 274 I understand that a written reply has been sent. We will go on to Question No. 275.
