§ MR. MURPHY (Kerry, E.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will say for what purpose a Mr. Cyril Atkinson has been appointed by the Local Government Board in connection with the Labourers Acts; what qualifications Mr. Atkinson has for the performance of such duties; and will he have to make any reports for publication before the discussion on the Labourers Bill.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
Mr. Atkinson is not on the permanent establishment of the Board, but is employed occasionally in assisting the Board's inspectors in the administration of the Labourers Acts. He has been associated with some of the most experienced inspectors in these duties, and has also had considerable experience in engineering work. The reply to the concluding inquiry is in the negative.
§ CAPTAIN DONELAN (Cork County, E.)
Is the appointment in recognition of the skill of the Attorney-General in drafting bills?
