§ CAPTAIN DONELAN () Cork, E.
On behalf of the hon. Member for West Waterford, I beg to ask t he Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the defective sanitary condition of the constabulary barrack at Clashmore, County Waterford, has been reported upon by Dr. O'Ryan, sanitary officer of the district; and whether, within the past few months, throe constables and a sergeant have had to be removed there-from to hospital suffering from typhoid fever; and, if so, are steps in progress for rendering the barrack safe for occupation?
MR. J. MORLEY
The defective sanitary condition of the constabulary barrack referred to has been reported on by Dr. O'Ryan, medical attendant to the Constabulary at that post, and within the past six mouths a sergeant and a constable were removed to hospital suffering from typhoid fever. Another constable has also fallen ill, though it is not yet known whether he suffers from typhoid. The position of this barrack is considered to be an unhealthy one, and there being no other suitable house, the station is being abolished, with the concurrence of Government.
