§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state the reason of the delay on the part of the Local Government Board for Ireland in sanctioning the pension granted by the guardians of Granard union to their late master, Mr. O'Beirne; whether he is aware that all the requirements of the Local Government Board and Major Fair as to medical certificates have been complied with by the guardians; and will he now direct that the amount be forthwith sanctioned.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
There is no delay on the part of the Board. It awaits information already called for from the guardians, and until this has been supplied the further consideration of the case cannot proceed.
