HC Deb 28 April 1884 vol 287 c727

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If, as President of the Local Government Board (Ireland), a charge of misconduct on the part of Mr. Dagg, Returning Officer, and George Driver, Poor Rate Collector, has been brought under his notice, in regard to the election, of a Poor Law Guardian for the electoral division of Rathdangan, in the union of Baltinglass; whether the complainants have applied to the Local Government Board for a sworn investigation; and, whether their application will be complied with?


The Local Government Board think it necessary that a sworn inquiry should be held in this case to investigate complaints made both by the Guardian returned and by the defeated candidate. The inquiry will be held on the 7th May.
