§ 77. Mr. DELANY
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Local Government Board are prepared to reconsider their decision with reference to the surcharge of £2 10s. made by their auditor, Richard Grubb, Esq., at the last audit of the accounts of the Abbeyleix District Council, in view of the fact that the sum mentioned was expended in repairing the fences on a plot of land attached to an unoccupied cottage, and that the expenditure was made for the purpose of reletting the cottage, which was vacant from the to 15th August, 1911, to the 29th March, 1912?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The decision of the Local Government Board in this matter is final. The Board could find no valid reason for remitting this surcharge.
