HC Deb 10 May 1894 vol 24 c769

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the fact that Mr. George Williams, late clerk in the Paymaster General's Office, Dublin Castle, and at present employed by the Irish Church Missions to Roman Catholics as the leader of the Cork street preachers, is now, so far as can be judged, completely restored to health, and that he is only 44 years of age, the Government propose to call upon him to submit himself to medical examination, with a view to requiring him to re-enter the Public Service; and whether there is any objection to lay upon the Table of the House the Papers relating to Mr. Williams's superannuation?


(who replied) said: The head of the Department in which Mr. George Williams served has satisfied himself that Mr. Williams is incapable of performing clerical duties, and I scarcely think there is reason for calling upon him to submit himself again for medical examination. I shall be happy to show my hon. Friend the Papers relating to Mr. Williams's superannuation.
