§ 11. Mr. GINNELL
asked the Chief Secretary what steps have been taken to give effect to the decisions of the conference -of journalists held some time ago at the Viceregal Lodge, Dublin; who is engaged in carrying them out; and at what cost?
§ The CHIEF SECRETARY for IRELAND (Mr. Birrell)
The Conference of representatives of the Irish Newspapers at the Vicregal Lodge on the 28th October last was convened by the Lord Lieutenant in order to seek the co-operation of the 1428 Press in His Excellency's Recruiting Campaign. That co-operation has been freely and ungrudgingly given by all sections of the Press, and has contributed in no small degree to the measure of success which has so far been achieved.
§ Mr. GINNELL
Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman would inform the House for what purpose two cheques from Dublin Castle, one for £3,000 and one for £7,000, have been given to Mr. Kevin Kenny?
