HC Deb 04 May 1904 vol 134 c389
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.


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.
