Written Answers. - County Galway By-Laws.
Galway County Council were advised by letter from my Department on 27 May 1986 that if the local authority is prepared to forward a letter to my Department containing a commitment that they will provide alternative accommodation for the travelling families normally resident in the Abbey Trinity car park in Tuam, a letter will issue to the county council enclosing confirmed by-laws.
I understand that my Department's letter of 27 May is on the agenda for consideration by the members of the council at their meeting on 13 June 1986.
