§ Mr. DEVLIN
asked the Chief Secretary whether his attention has been called to the ignoring by the Antrim Board of Guardians of the recommendation of the Medical Officer of Health, forwarded 807W through the Local Government Board, that a skilled nurse for the sick poor should be appointed in the Ballyclare district; whether he is aware that no skilled nursing for the poor is available in case of necessity in the district; and what action the Local Government Board propose to take in the matter?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The facts are as stated. I understand that the Antrim Board of Guardians have had their attention drawn on several occasions to the advisability of appointing a midwife. The Local Government Board have again referred the matter to their medical inspector, and on receipt of his report will again communicate with the guardians.
