HC Deb 13 September 1886 vol 309 cc179-80
MR. COX(for Mr. DEASY) (Mayo, W.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the position of Medical Adviser to the Constabulary at Castlebar has been refused to the Dispensary Medical Officer; and, whether he will state the reasons for this departure from custom by the police authorities?


, in reply, said, he had already answered the Question. He had already explained that the Inspector General sought the most eligible professional man who was capable of performing the duties. In this case it was found desirable to secure the services of someone of more experience than the Dispensary Medical Officer, who had only a few weeks before obtained his diploma.
