§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Louth, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the repeated demands, the latest being an unanimous resolution of the Dublin 93 Corporation, for independent inquiry into the case of the Catholic gentlemen in the Veterinary Branch of the Agricultural Department, who, after eleven years service on high-class duties, receive salaries of £97 10s. per annum, he will now direct the Department to consent to such inquiry.
§ MR. WALTER LONG
The resolution of the Dublin Corporation was one asking for the Department's observations on the resolution of the King's County Council passed at the instance of the hon. Member for the Ossory Division. The Department do not discuss questions relating to their staff with local bodies which have no functions in the matter. I have repeatedly stated that there are no grounds for any further inquiry
