§ MR. HOGAN (Tipperary, Mid)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the printing for the urban council of the City of Cashel, County Tipperary, is now being done at a distance of twelve miles, whereas it could be more promptly and economically done in the office of the local newspaper, the Cashel Sentinel; and whether the proprietor of that journal, as a member of the urban council, is legally entitled to insert the council's advertisements in his paper, but debarred from doing any general printing for the council.
§ MR. G. W. BALFOUR
I am not in a position to express any opinion as to whether the printing for the Cashel Urban District Council could be more promptly and more economically done at the office of the newspaper mentioned than by the printing firm now engaged upon the work. The provisions of Article 12 (4) and (5) of the Application of Enactments Order appear to be correctly interpreted in the second paragraph of the question.
