HC Deb 09 September 1886 vol 308 cc1743-4
MR. BARRY (Wexford, S.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If his attention has been drawn to resolutions passed by a majority of the Boards of Governors of District Asylums in Ireland, in favour of the claims of the asylum officials and attendants for an increase of salary and superannuation allowance; and, whether the Government intend to take any stops in the matter this year?


, in reply, said, he was informed that a large number of resolutions had been received in reference to this matter. He had not yet had time to give much attention to them. He was not aware of any sufficient reason for taking the steps suggested in the Question with reference to the salaries of officials employed in lunatic asylums in Ireland. Individual cases brought before the Government by the Boards of Governors would be, however, duly considered. Cases of superannuation follow the Civil Service Rules.
