HC Deb 21 February 1887 vol 311 cc157-8
MR. CONDON (Tipperary, E.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Local Government Board charge the Town Commissioners of Cashel £12 annually for auditing their accounts; whether the Town Commissioners remonstrated with the Board, stating the charge to be excessive, as the work can be done in one and a-half days; whether the Board make a profit out of the transaction; and, whether he will inquire into the matter, with the view to lessening this charge?


The Local Government Board report that the amount charged for the audit of the Cashel accounts is correctly stated. The Board have not received any recent remonstrance from the Commissioners on the subject. The salaries of the auditors are proportionately assessed from time to time by the Local Government Board under the provisions of the statute. The Board are now engaged in revising the assessments over Ireland, and care will be taken to deal fairly with Cashel.
