§ MR. D. MACALEESE (Monaghan, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether any, and, if so, what date has been appointed by the Local Government Board or their auditor for the purpose of auditing the accounts of the Town Commissioners of Bangor, county Down, for the year ending 31st December 1896; what is the cause of delay in this audit; and will arrangements be made to have it proceeded with and completed forthwith?
§ *MR. GERALD BALFOUR
No date has yet been fixed for the audit of the accounts of the town referred to. The reason attributed for the delay is illness of the town clerk. Arrangements will be made for proceeding with the audit as soon as the accounts are completed and the balance-sheets ready for the auditor.
