HC Deb 14 February 1917 vol 90 cc636-7W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he will state the number of days on which a Local Government Board clerk, named Purcell, was engaged as official shorthand writer in connection with the Irish Rebellion (Victims) Committee; the amount of remuneration he received for this work; and whether it is proposed to give him further facilities for doing outside work of this class, which had always been done in Ireland by journalists?


The necessity for a shorthand writer not having arisen, Mr. Purcell has not done any work for the Eebellion (Victims) Committee, and has received no remuneration. If his services are required, arrangements have been made with the Local Government Board for their being available.
