HC Deb 24 July 1882 vol 272 c1528

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether Mr. Richard Garland, a Sub-Commissioner under the Land Law Act, still holds the office of Coroner for the county Armagh; whether, since his appointment as Sub-Commissioner, he has performed any of the duties incident to the coroner's office and received salary for same; whether, in view of the frequent occasions where the services of coroners in Ireland are required, he will call upon Mr. Garland to elect which office he will continue to hold, and require him to resign the other?


Sir, Mr. Garland does, I find, still hold the office of Coroner for the County Armagh. Since his appointment as a Sub-Commissioner, he has not acted as Coroner. He has received part of the salary duo for the half-year, and has paid one of the other Coroners of the county for doing the duty. The Land Commissioners were under the impression that he had resigned the Coroner ship. He will now be called on to resign either one appointment or the other.
