§ MR.REDDY (King's County, Birr)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received a resolution from the Tuam Board of Guardians protesting against the refusal of the Local Government Board to agree to an increase of £10 a year in the salary of Nurse O'Connor; whether he is aware that Mrs. O'Connor's district comprises 34,526 acres with a sparse population, which renders the attendance at cases all the more difficult; and, whether, seeing that a similar increase was sanctioned for a lady with 12,000 less acres to cover than Mrs. O'Connor, will he advise the Local Government Board to grant this increase.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The hon. and gallant Member for North Galway had already directed my attention to this case, and I am making some inquiries on the subject, which are not yet completed. I will communicate the result of these inquiries to the hon. Member in due course.
