HC Deb 31 July 1907 vol 179 c941

To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether the late Comptroller and Auditor-General was in favour of having the Irish audit work transferred and done in Dublin instead of in London, as at present; whether such transfer has been opposed by the present Assistant Comptroller and Auditor, who refused to receive a report favourable to it from a principal clerk who was sent to Dublin and instructed to investigate its feasibility; and will he say how long this Assistant Comptroller has been in the Audit Office, and what were his qualifications for the post he now holds.

(Answered by Mr. Runciman.) The reply is in the negative.
