"Bathrooms not wanted" at Sion Mills

At Strabane Rural Council yesterday it was agreed to ask the housing architects to draw up lay-out plans for a smaller type of house in Sion Mills.

Mr. E. T. R. Herdman said a lot of people in Sion Mills were afraid of the rents of present-day houses. The Ministry should realize what the people wanted was the old type of house, without bathrooms and extras.
