In the Dáil last week Mr. R. Lahiffe asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce what were the reasons for the delay in bringing rural electrification to Kinvara. The Minister stated that a canvass of the area had not met with sufficient response to make the scheme financially sound. He understood, he stated, that a local committee was endeavouring the increase the number of potential consumers and he could give no assurance as to when electricity would be brought to that area.
