HC Deb 20 April 1891 vol 352 c931

I beg to ask tie Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Mr. Thomas M'Dermott is an In-specter, of Fisheries for the Londonderry District, nearly the whole of the net fishing in it being worked by the " Foyle and Bann Fishery Company," in whose employment he also is, and when as Inspector he is supposed to prosecute for any infringement of the law; and, if this is so, whether such a combination of offices has been sanctioned by the Irish Government?


Mr. M'Dermott holds office under the Londonderry Board of Conservators. He is represented to be a good officer in every way. Appointments of Local Inspectors are not made under the sanction of the Irish Government, but rest solely with the Conservators.
