HC Deb 04 August 1890 vol 347 c1747

I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether it has been brought to the notice of the Local Government Board that the clerk of the Bandon Poor Law Union was absent from his office 12 days in December, 10 in January, 8 in February, 10 in April, and 10 in May; and, if brought under their notice, has the Board demanded any explanation from the clerk of this neglect of duty; and, if so, what explanation has been tendered?


It appears from a letter received from the clerk of the Bandon Union that he was absent from his office on the days mentioned in the question owing to ill-health; but he states that he is now recovered, and hopes to be able to attend at his office regularly in future.
