HC Deb 24 April 1891 vol 352 cc1324-5
MR. CLANCY (Dublin Co., N.)

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the out-door super visors 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 out-door supervisors for the Dublin collection.


I answered this question also yesterday.
