§ MR. DALY (Monaghan, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the County Council of Monaghan recently passed a resolution in favour of the amalgamation of workhouses; and whether he will direct the Local Government Board to hold an inquiry in the county of Monaghan with a view of ascertaining what workhouses might be closed there.
§ MR. G. W. BALFOUR
The resolution referred to has been received. The Local Government Board are in communication with the county council on the subject.
