§ MR. McCARTAN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the reports appearing in the Belfast morning papers of Wednesday last of the discussion before the Belfast Board of Guardians about the dispute between Nurse Craig and Nurse King; and whether, considering that Nurse Craig has been so long a tried and trusted official, and the present unsatisfactory state of the case, he will suggest that a sworn Inquiry be held by the Local Government Board into the matter?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
Yes, Sir; I have seen the newspaper report referred to. The Local Government Board have addressed the Guardians in this matter requesting that Nurse Craig may be called upon to furnish a written explanation respecting the complaint made against her. The Guardians will have the matter under their consideration to-morrow and the Local Government will await their action before taking further steps.
