inquiries in Dublin before he could understand a similar inquiry in Cork.
The case of Cork was not so urgent as that of Dublin. Under the new Cork
Improvement Act, a largely increased housing accommodation would be provided
independently of the Corporation. It would probably be thought advisable to
await the completion of the plans of these new buildings before considering
the question of further accommodation the Corporation should provide.
