HC Deb 16 November 1882 vol 274 cc1529-30

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it is the fact that, although the grand juries are bound by 44 and 45 Vict. c. 35, sub-section 3, to pay the salaries of coroners half-yearly, the Treasurer of County Galway has refused to pay Mr. Coroner Lynch accordingly; and, if he will give instructions to put a stop to the practice by which salaries of coroners presented for at one assize have payment deferred until the next?


There are four Coroners in the County Galway. They are all paid at the same time—namely, at the Assizes following that at which the presentment is made for their salaries. There are no funds in the County Treasurer's hands to pay presentments made at the last Assizes until the cess has been collected and lodged to the credit of the county.
