MR. LEAM (Kildare, N.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that the quarter cask of whisky, containing about 62 gallons, which had been- procured by the guardians of the Naas Union for the† See page 27.1355 use of the inmates, has become not potable owing to having been reduced by water which was subsequently found to have been polluted, and that the Local Government Board has ordered it to be destroyed; and, if so, whether, seeing that the duty has been paid on it, the Commissioners of Inland Revenue will either refund the duty or make some allowance in respect thereof, seeing that the guardians were at the loss of the material and have had to replace it.
(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The facts are as stated. The workhouse master who was responsible for the loss has since been required to resign. The guardians communicated with the Commissioners of Inland Revenue, and were informed that the latter have no power to make any repayment of duty in respect of spirits which have passed out of Revenue control.
