§ SIR T. ESMONDE (Dublin Co., S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if, in view of the desire of the ratepayers of the Rath-down Union to have chaplains appointed to the Union Cemetery, he would use his influence with the Rathdown Board of Guardians to induce them to favourably consider the ratepayers' request?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
An application of the nature mentioned in this Question appears to have been made to the Rathdown Board of Guardians in February last. The matter is one wholly for the consideration of the Guardians, and the Local Government Board are unable to interfere.
