§ MR. W. J. CORBET
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If he caused inquiry to be made relative to the death of William Rooney in Naas Workhouse, as he promised; and, if so, what was the result?
§ MR. W. E. FORSTER,
in reply, said, he had inquired into the matter by writing to the Local Government Board, and, from their answer, he did not consider that any blame was to be attached to the relieving officer. An Inspector of the Local Government Board had examined the case narrowly, and his and the other evidence was such as to induce the Coronor who presided at the inquest, which lasted two days, to sum up as follows:—I suppose you will find a verdict in accordance with the medical evidence, and that you will agree with me that no blame is to be attached to the relieving officer.
