§ DR. THOMPSON (Monaghan, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if lie will give effect to his promise, made last session of Parliament on behalf of the Irish Local Government Board, that when vacancies occurred amongst consulting sanitary officers, superintendent officers of health would be appointed.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The statement made by me last session was, that the provision in the Board's Sanitary Order of May, 1900, with respect to the appointment of a Medical Superintendent Officer of Health had not been acted upon in any case, and that the opportunity to act upon it would only arise as vacancies occur in the office of Consulting Sanitary Officer. The Board is prepared in all cases where such vacancies may arise, to sanction the appointment of Medical Superintendent Officers of Health.
