HC Deb 04 March 1903 vol 118 c1361
MR. KENDAL O'BRIEN (Tipperary, Mid)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the requirement of the Local Government Board that the medical officer of a dispensary district should reside within it, the Local Government Board will take steps to secure that the medical officer for the Bournea district of the Roscrea Union shall comply with this requirement.


The regulations require the medical officer to reside within the district unless the Board, on exceptional grounds, dispense with this condition. The medical officer in question was permitted to reside outside, but adjacent to his district, because it contained no suitable house or lodgings. No complaint has been received of any hardship on the sick poor by this arrangement.
