HC Deb 17 March 1887 vol 312 cc528-9
MR. J. E. REDMOND (Wexford, N.)

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, If it is a fact that the principal posts in the Inland Revenue Department in Dublin are filled by Englishmen, and if the two important posts of Controller of Legacy Duty and Controller of Stamps were filled by transfers of minor Clerks from the London Office to these appointments, over the heads of competent Irishmen, of long experience, in the Irish Office in Dublin; if it is a fact that a scheme of re-organization is at present being carried out by an official from London; if there is any rule in the Department which excludes Irishmen from promotion; and, if he will lay upon the Table the draft scheme of reorganization before it has been finally adopted?


I am informed that the answer to all the Questions of the hon. Member is no, Sir.
