Dáil Eireann Debate
Mr. Fox: asked the Minister for Local Government if, in view of a decision of the Circuit Court on claims resulting from the cratering of roads in Border areas by the British Army, any decision has been taken regarding the indemnifying of local authorities who are faced with such claims.
Mr. Molloy: I would refer the Deputy to the replies given to Questions No. 10 of 24th February, Nos. 10 and 19 of 1st March, and No. 20 of 5th July, in this matter. The whole question of damage caused to property in this State as a result of the cratering of cross-Border roads by British Forces is being kept under review by all of the Ministers who are concerned in this matter.
Mr. Molloy: I am aware of the case mentioned by the Deputy relating to Monaghan County Council. All I can say is that this matter is being kept under review by all the Departments concerned, including my own.
