HC Deb 25 June 1891 vol 354 c1438

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if it is true that the late paid Guardians in the Cork Union handed over the management of the Union to the present Board of elected and ex officio Guardians, a large debt being owing by the Union; if so, what was the exact amount of such debt, and for what was it due; and whether the late paid Guardians can be made responsible if any loss happens to the Union in question?


It is not the case that the Vice Guardians handed over the management of the Cork Union to the elected Board with a large debt owing by the Union. On the contrary, while the matured debts were about £3,500, there was a balance in the treasurer's hands, to the credit of the Union of £8,900.
