HC Deb 17 May 1898 vol 57 c1555

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the deficient nursing arrangements in connection with the workhouse at Larne, county Antrim, and if any steps will be taken with reference to the want of proper classification of the inmates of this workhouse?


For some time past the Local Government Board have been urging the Larne Board of Guardians to make better arrangements for the nursing of the sick in the workhouse infirmary, which are both inadequate and unsatisfactory, and for the due observance of the classification of inmates. The matters referred to will be considered at a special meeting of the guardians to be held to-morrow.
