HC Deb 30 April 1901 vol 93 cc271-2
MR. ARCHDALE (Fermanagh, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the sum expended on outdoor relief in Listowel Union, it being £380 more than the combined expenditure in Tralee and Dingle Unions, and slightly in excess of the combined expenditure for the same purpose in Killarney, Dingle, and Kenmare Unions, though any of the other districts are comparatively poorer than Listowel; and whether he proposes to take any steps to place some check on the expenditure in the Listowel Union.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say how much of this £380 are the landlord friends of the hon. Member paying in North Kerry?


Order Order!


The Inspector of the Local Government Board has called the attention of the Listowel Guardians to the excessive expenditure on outdoor relief, with the result that the relief lists have been revised and a reduction ordered.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Member for North Fermanagh is looking for a more friendly constituency than his own?

[No answer was returned.]
