Mr. McAuliffe: Information on Patrick McAuliffe Zoom on Patrick McAuliffe Would the Minister state if he has any proposals from the North Cork Committee for either extensions or improvements of the existing water supply at Kildorrery?

Mr. Blaney: Information on Neil T.C. Blaney Zoom on Neil T.C. Blaney The information I have is that there are no proposals for extensions to Kildorrery water supply.

Mr. McAuliffe: Information on Patrick McAuliffe Zoom on Patrick McAuliffe Surely the Minister is aware that there is in his Department at the moment a proposal for an immediate extension of this water supply to two places in particular, one being Ballyanihan and the other Derryvillane in which area people are suffering from a lack of water caused by the sanitary authorities leading a sewer into the river?

Mr. Blaney: Information on Neil T.C. Blaney Zoom on Neil T.C. Blaney We have got that but we do not regard it as an extension. The contract drawings are at present being examined in my Department.

Mr. Blaney: Information on Neil T.C. Blaney Zoom on Neil T.C. Blaney Kildorrery is what is on the Order Paper. I am not aware on the other two place names were mentioned.

Mr. Blaney: Information on Neil T.C. Blaney Zoom on Neil T.C. Blaney I have no idea.

Mr. McAuliffe: Information on Patrick McAuliffe Zoom on Patrick McAuliffe Will the Minister expedite it?

Mr. Blaney: Information on Neil T.C. Blaney Zoom on Neil T.C. Blaney Yes, and I should not like the Deputy to think that I have [620] given him wrong information. I was misled by the description.

Mr. McAuliffe: Information on Patrick McAuliffe Zoom on Patrick McAuliffe I accept that. I thought the Minister was trying to put one over.

Mr. Blaney: Information on Neil T.C. Blaney Zoom on Neil T.C. Blaney No.
