§ MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN (Kilkenny)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can give the names of, and the amount of remuneration paid to, the inspectors who served in Munster under the Seed Supply and Potato Spraying (Ireland) Act, 1898.
§ MR. G. W. BALFOUR
The inspectors employed under the Act mentioned were not assigned to districts, but were employed as occasion required in various parts of the country. A list of the names of the inspectors so employed will be found at page 62 of the 26th Annual Report of the Local Government Board. The inspectors were paid at the rate of three guineas a day when on duty, together with travelling expenses.
