§ MR. P. M'DONALD (Sligo, N.)
asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, Whether Mr. C. H. James, late Official Assignee to the Irish Court of Bankruptcy, had been required to give security before or after his appointment; if so, whether he can state who were the sureties, and for what amount was the bond given; whether the bond was in force at the time of his dismissal; and, whether the sureties have since paid the amount of their liability; if not, whether steps will be taken to enforce the payment of same?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. HOLMES) (Dublin University)
the late Official Assignee gave security to the extent of £5,000, which security was in force on his dismissal, and one half of it has been already paid, and the remainder is secured. The whole matter is now being investigated, and I think I can assure the hon. Gentle-man that no loss will be sustained.
