§ MR. MAURICE HEALY (Cork)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the allowance for lodging money made to married head constables, sergeants, and constables in the Royal Irish Constabulary is the same, and what allowance is made to warders and assistant warders in the prison service for the same purpose.
§ MR. G. W. BALFOUR
The reply to the first part of this question is in the affirmative. The allowance to warders whose families cannot be accommodated 33 with prison quarters is £1 10s. per month in certain towns and £1 3s. 6d. in other towns. This allowance is inclusive of fuel and light. There is no such rank as assistant warder in the prison service.
