§ MR. A. O'CONNOR (Donegal, E)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state the result of the inquiries which he promised to cause to be made during the Recess into the destitution and sickness in the district of the Rosses in County Donegal?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The condition of the district of the Rosses, in the County Donegal, has been receiving careful attention. There has been an epidemic of scarlatina in the locality, but the Guardians appear to be taking steps, by temporarily closing the local National school and other means, to stamp out, if possible, the disease. So far, I am happy to say, no distress has existed which would necessitate the starting of relief works in the district.
