§ MR. NANNETTI (Dublin, College Green)
To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether one of the charges which led up to the dismissal of the late shoemaker, Keogh, from the Dundrum Criminal Lunatic Asylum was that a sufficiency of work was not performed by him; whether he could give a Return of this man's work for the three years previous to his dismissal; and also the number of shoemakers who have been appointed to the vacancy since Keogh's 288 discharge, together with their length of service.
(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) The reply to the first inquiry is in the negative. There would, therefore, be no object in giving the Return asked for. Three shoemakers have been appointed since Keogh's discharge; of these, two failed to take up duty, and the third, who was appointed on 1st October, 1903, still holds the post.
