§ MR. A. O'CONNOR (Donegal, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received any communication from the Glenties Board of Guardians requesting a sworn inquiry into the state of the Lower Rosses district, alleging the pressing necessity of relief works to save the lives of the people, and urging the establishment of a local fever hospital and of a local dispensary; whether he 775 has received, within the last few days, any official Report relating to destitution and disease in the Rosses; and what the Government intend to do in the matter? I may add that the sworn inquiry is that to which I have previously referred.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
I have not received the Report referred to; it has not reached my hands.
§ MR. A. O'CONNOR
Will the right hon. Gentleman cause further inquiries to be made during the Recess?
