Deputy Michael Ring asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Finance if officials from the Office of Public Works will meet with persons (details supplied) in County Mayo in relation to a serious and ongoing flooding problem. [21473/07]
Deputy Noel Ahern Deputy Noel Ahern
 Deputy Noel Ahern: The Commissioners of Public Works have no responsibility for maintenance of the river in the area concerned. However, the Office of Public Works is happy to assist with technical advice and guidance in this matter.
To this end, Officials from the OPW met with Officials from Mayo Co. Council, together with an elected member of Mayo Co. Council last year and a possible solution was proposed which is still being considered. In the circumstances, the meeting requested by the Deputy would be more appropriate to the Local Authority.
