HC Deb 08 July 1887 vol 317 cc210-1
MR. REYNOLDS (Tyrone, E.)

asked the Secretary to the Board of Trade, Whether any situations under the Commissioners of Irish Lights are filled by persons who have been in the Royal Navy; and, if so, whether he will grant a Return as to the qualifications, pay, and pensions of these officers?

THE SECRETARY (Baron HENRY DE WORMS) (Liverpool, East Toxteth)

Three officers of the Board of Irish Lights have been in the Royal Navy, besides several men serving in the light vessels and steamers belonging to the Commissioners. The information as to these officers which the hon. Member appears to desire can be given at once, if the hon. Member will move for it; if the Return is to include the men, the collection of the information will necessarily take time.
