§ Mr. DUKE
I am informed that there has been no avoidable delay in the payment of approved awards to dependants of persons killed in the rebellion. In cases -of awards for the benefit of widows and minors it has sometimes been necessary to apportion the sums approved between the parties concerned and to arrange for lodgment in Court of the shares of minors. Speaking generally, payment has followed within a short time of the award.
§ Mr. T. M. HEALY
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether, as a year has elapsed since the shooting of Messrs. Dickson and M'Intyre (along with Mr. S. Skeffington), something will be done for the families of these two men who are in poor circumstances?
