HC Deb 08 March 1911 vol 22 cc1354-5W

asked the Chief Secretary if his attention has been called to the fact that John Toorish, of Strabane, has acted as registration agent whilst holding the position of sanitary officer; and if it is in accordance with the regulations of the Local Government Board that a public official should be a political agent?


The Local Government Board are not aware that John Toorish, sanitary sub-officer in Strabane urban district, has acted in the manner indicated. There is nothing to prohibit such action, but the Board are adverse to local officers engaging in work of a political character.
