HC Deb 25 June 1913 vol 54 cc1075-6W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he will again bring under the notice of the Local Government Board the circumstances relating to recent surcharges on certain members of the Roscommon Board of Guardians for giving out-door relief to a working man with seven in family whilst he was sick in bed, the surcharges being made because this man held two acres of land; and whether, in view of the fact that it would have been competent for the board to have given relief to a destitute member of his family, the Local Government Board will reconsider the matter with a view of remitting the surcharges in question?


This case was decided in March last, and the Local Government Board have no power to re-open consideration of the matter.
