HC Deb 26 February 1906 vol 152 c772

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that no morgue has been provided for the urban district of Rathmines and Rathgar, with the result that inquests in that district must frequently be held in public houses, while the dead bodies are kept in stables and outhouses; and whether he will, through the Local Government Board, urge on the District Council of Rathmines to provide such necessaries as a morgue before proceeding with any further schemes for extending the boundaries of their district.

(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The circumstances mentioned do not appear to have been brought to the notice of the Local Government Board; but the Board have ascertained that the Rathmines Urban District Council have decided to include in next year's estimate the necessary provision for the erection of a morgue.
