§ MR. J. J. SHEE (Waterford, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the salaries paid to county surveyors in Ireland are inclusive of travelling expenses; and, if not, what is the amount payable under statute as travelling allowance to county surveyors?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
By Section 41 of the Grand Jury Act, 1836, the salary allowed to a county surveyor is inclusive of all charges and expenses which such surveyor shall incur, or to which he shall be liable, in the performance of his duties under the Acts. But he is entitled to out-of-pocket expenses for attendance at extraordinary presentment sessions, held under the Public Works (Ireland) Act, 1867.
