§ MR. O'KELLY (Roscommon, N.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether his attention has been called to the Resolution passed at a meeting of the inhabitants of Sligo, condemning the proposed withdrawal of the Collector of Inland Revenue and his staff from Sligo;whether Sligo is one of the most important ports in the West of Ireland, and conveniently situated to servo several neighbouring counties;and, whether, should the proposed change be made, there will be no Collector between Londonderry and Galway?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
This Question should be addressed to my hon. Friend the Secretary to the Treasury, and I am under the impression that he has answered it more than once already.
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)
said, he had answered the Question on two separate occasions within the past week or two. The whole matter would be carefully considered before any action was taken.
§ MR. ARTHUR O'CONNOR (Donegal, E.)
Is this reduction in Sligo a proportion of a large scheme of reduction extending over every portion of Ireland?
