§ MR. LONSDALE
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland what action has been taken by the Local Government Board in regard to the appointment of Dr. Clarke as temporary medical officer to the local dispensary district, having regard to the fact that the Ballina Board of Guardians made it a condition of his appointment that he should use his influence to induce his uncle to relinquish his tenancy on the Crannagh farm.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The Local Government Board have sanctioned Dr. Clarke's— appointment as temporary medical officer of the Ballina dispensary district. No—facts came to the knowledge of the Board which would justify them in withholding their sanction.
