HC Deb 27 April 1910 vol 17 cc605-6W

asked the Chief Secretary if he will inquire whether the inspectors of lunatics have received from Major Eccles, Local Government auditor, Returns, duly audited by him, showing a sum of £1,825 7s. 4d. as due by the Government to the committee of management of the Monaghan and Cavan District Asylum for the maintenance of pauper lunatics at the rate of 4s. per head per week, for the period from 1st January, 1899, to 31st March, 1899; and, if so, what reply or acknowledgment was sent to the committee; and will he inquire whether this sum has been paid to the committee, and, if not, why?


The Returns referred to were received by the inspectors of lunatics, and were sent back to the committee of management of the asylum with a request that they should be retained at the asylum, until called for. As regards the remainder of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I have just given to his previous question on the same subject.
