Written Answers. - Western Drainage Scheme.

266.

asked the Minister for Agriculture when work will commence on a scheme under the western drainage scheme to drain a stream which flows through Lissivan West and Naun-tinaune, near Milltown PO, County Kerry, for persons (details supplied) in County Kerry.

Because of the size and complexity of the scheme, detailed investigations are necessary to determine whether the project is technically feasible and whether the benefits likely to accrue would justify the expenditure involved. The investigations will be expedited as far as possible.
