§ MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN (Kilkenny)
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney-General for Ireland whether Government employés, such as officers of the Inland Revenue, are eligible for election and to sit as District Councillors or Town Councillors under the Local Government (Ireland) Act?
§ THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. J. ATKINSON,) Londonderry, N.
There is nothing in the Local Government (Ireland) Act or Orders to disqualify any of the officers referred to. Their eligibility will depend on the Rules of the service to which they respectively belong.
