I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will grant the Return of Local Government Inspectors now on the Notice Paper; and, in the event of refusing any of the information asked, will he state reasons for the refusal.

The Return was as follows:—

I am prepared to give this Return in a silently amended form. Some of the information asked for is not available. I will communicate to the hon. Member the amendments which I would propose.
