asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland the number of appeals lodged by pension officers against the decisions of local sub-pension committees in the county Sligo during the past twelve months; and in how many cases the appeals were successful, and the number of cases dismissed?


Two hundred and forty-seven appeals were received by the Local Government Board from pension officers against decisions of pension committees in Sligo county during the year ended 31st December, 1913. Of this number, 154 were upheld by the Local Government Board, in ninety-two cases the Board differed from the pension officer, and one case is at present under consideration.
