§ SIR THOMAS ESMONDE (Wexford, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if the employees of the Board of Works at Kingstown have been notified that the customary holiday on New Year's Day is no longer to be allowed to them, and, if so, for what reason; and whether the Treasury will allow this holiday in future as heretofore.
§ MR. RUNCIMAN
If the hon. Baronet will refer to the Answer which my hon. friend gave to the hon. Member for the St. Patrick's Division of Dublin on the 5th April last,† he will find that St. Patrick's Day has been substituted for New Years Day as a holiday at Kingstown.
