Written Answers. - Ballyshannon (Donegal) Town Commissioners.

Mary Coughlan


146 Miss Coughlan asked the Minister for the Environment the progress, if any, that has been made regarding the upgrading of the Ballyshannon Town Commissioners to an urban council. [1749/96]

Part X of the Local Government Act, 1994, provided for the establishment of a commission to report on town local government, including the appropriate classification for town local authorities. I expect to receive the report of this commission in about one month. In the meantime, it would be inappropriate to consider changes in the status of particular towns.
