HC Deb 22 July 1909 vol 8 c737W

asked the Chief Secretary whether District-Inspector Rogers, of Enniscorthy, has yet returned to duty; whether he has yet made a statement as to his turns of horseback duty, and, if so, of what they consisted; whether this officer, on the occasion of his transfer to Enniscorthy, claimed a sum of about £20 for expenses, and whether the authorities reduced this amount to £3; what claims made by Mr. Rogers were allowed and what disallowed; whether, in making his claim, vouchers were submitted or declarations made as to expenses incurred; and what action was taken by the Inspector-General in the matter?


District-Inspector Rogers has returned to duty. He was unable to make a statement as to his turns of horseback duty, as his diary had not been regularly kept, but the county inspector, at the instance of the inspector-general has made personal inquiries, and, as a result of these inquiries, the inspector-general has reprimanded the district-inspector for his conduct in the matter. When transferred to Enniscorthy the district-inspector did not bring his family to live with him, but moved them and his furniture to Dublin. He claimed the expenses to which he would have been entitled had he transferred his family and effects to Enniscorthy, but the claim was disallowed as not coming within the regulations.
