HC Deb 04 August 1890 vol 347 cc1769-70
MR. HENRY CAMPBELL) (Fermanagh, S.

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been called to the case of a man named Henry Loughran, Wattle Bridge, Bel-turbet, who was employed as a collector and lock keeper on the Ulster Canal from March 1873 to April 1889, and was entrusted by the Board of Works with the payment of the fortnightly wages to the labourers on the canal from Lough Erne to Charlemont, a distance of 4G miles, bat received no remuneration for the latter service from March 1873 to 1880, when the Treasury granted him an allowance of 7s. 6d. for each fortnightly payment up to the date of his discharge in 1880; and, if so, whether he will endeavour to induce the Treasury to pay Loughran a like sum for his services in connection with the fortnightly payments of the labourers' wages during the years from March 1873 to the end of 1880?


I understand that the facts are correctly stated by the hon. Member. I will make inquiries on the subject, and will communicate my decision to the hon. Member.
