HC Deb 22 July 1902 vol 111 cc910-1
MR. LEAMY (Kildare, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the registry of births, deaths, and marriages in the workhouse of the Naas Poor Law Union consists of two rooms, an inner and an outer room, the inner room being a strong closet in which filled-up registers are deposited, the outer room only being used by the master and other officials of the union for the transaction of official business; and whether, seeing that the registration inspector has reported that the use of this outer room by the master and other officials causes no inconvenience; and that its use by them will be discontinued should the room be required for registration purposes, in order to avoid the unnecessary expense of building new offices for the master, &c., the Registrar General will reconsider his decision and allow the room to be used as hitherto under the control of the Guardians.


I replied very fully to a Question put by the hon. Member on this subject on the 30th June.† To that reply I have nothing to add, except to say that the Inspector has not reported to the effect alleged.
