HC Deb 27 February 1905 vol 141 c1308
ME. P. J. O'BRIEN (Tipperary, N.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he has seen the correspondence which passed between the County Council of North Tipperary and the Local Government Board with reference to The Public Bodies Accounts Order, 1904, and the resolutions of the council subsequently passed thereon; and whether, in consideration of the facts therein set forth, and the protest of the council against the expense and complications involved by this new Order, he will see his way to have the question of this Order reconsidered.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) Yes, Sir; I have seen the correspondence and resolutions referred to. The council appears to be under a misapprehension as to the changes made by the Order, and the Board has directed its attention to the fact that nearly all the forms objected to are practically the same as those which have been in operation for the past six years.
