§ MR. EDWARD HARRINGTON (Kerry, W.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, How long has the position of County Surveyor for Kerry been vacant; what steps have been taken to fill it; and, when is Kerry likely to have a County Surveyor?
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY UNDER SECRETARY (Colonel KING-HARMAN) (Kent, Isle of Thanet)
(who replied) said, the delay in the appointment of a County Surveyor for Kerry occurred in consequence of the Grand Jury dividing the county into two parts, with the view of appointing two Surveyors for the county. Some time had been occupied with the necessary medical examination. The Civil Service Commissioners had issued their certificate of qualification, and the appointment would be carried out at once.
