§ Mr. BOLAND
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland what steps the Local Government Board has taken to deal with cases of distress in the parish of Cahirciveen, as set out by the terms of a resolution recently submitted to the Board?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Local Government Board directed their inspector to investigate the alleged distress in Cahirciveen. From his report it appears that from 1567W various causes connected with the War there are a certain number of families in temporary distress, and the Board have forwarded a consignment of Canadian flour and cheese to meet the emergency.
