HC Deb 29 August 1887 vol 320 c270
DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If it is a fact that Mr. T. W. Lendrum, of Riverstown, County Cork, holds the position of Assistant County Surveyor, and of Clerk to the Riverstown Petty Sessions District; and, whether the tenant of a Petty Sessions clerkship is entitled to take any other official position of emolument?

THE PARLIAMENTARY UNDER SECRETARY (Colonel KING-HARMAN)(who replied) (Kent, Isle of Thanet)

said, his answer to the first part of the Question was in the affirmative. Petty Sessions clerks were permitted to hold other official appointments, provided they were not positions which were prohibited by Statute, or prohibited by the Lord Lieutenant. The position of Assistant County Surveyor did not come within the prohibition.
