HC Deb 27 August 1895 vol 36 c892
DR. KENNY (Dublin, College Green)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, whether he will explain on what ground certain pensioners employed in the pay office at Naas have been deprived of their lodging allowance, and compelled to live in barrack, and an appeal against this decision was refused to be forwarded; and if an inquiry will be held into the complaint of the pensioners in the matter?


This was a purely local routine matter, and was settled in the station where it occurred. Inquiry shows that on two quarters in barracks becoming available two pensioner sergeants were directed to occupy them, which made a saving on the local expenditure for lodging allowances. There were appeals which were disposed of locally, which is the proper course in matters of this character.
