HC Deb 23 April 1891 vol 352 c1174
MR. CLANCY (Dublin Co., N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of the Treasury whether the outdoor supervisors of Inland Revenue in the " collection " which comprises the City and County of Dublin, as well as portions of the Counties of Wicklow, Wexford, Kildare, Meath, and Carlow, are compelled by the extensive character of their duties to work from 10 to 12 hours on week days, and often to work on Sundays also; and whether the Commissioners of Inland Revenue have described the outdoor supervisors as their most important officers, they being solely responsible to the Exchequer for the due and proper charging of the Excise Revenue; and, if so, will he direct the Commissioners of Inland Revenue to investigate the circumstances of their position with a view to increasing the staff of outdoor supervisors for the Dublin collection?


No such Regulation exists, but the Board of Inland Revenue are inquiring into the matter.
