§ Sir THOMAS ESMONDE
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if the Registered Accountants Bill now before Parliament will affect the interests of Irish county officials who now audit the accounts of various local bodies and companies; and, if so, if he will take the necessary steps to have the interests of these officials safeguarded under this Bill?
§ Mr. ILLINGWORTH
As my right hon. Friend has already stated, in reply to the hon. Member's question of 8th May, the Bill would not appear to have the effect of prejudicing the interests of Irish county officials as such.
