HC Deb 08 March 1917 vol 91 c576W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, with reference to the refusal of sanction to the appointment of a duly qualified medical officer for the Clondalkin (county Dublin) dispensary district by the Local Government Board, on (inter alia) the ground that the services of young men were urgently needed for the Royal Army Medical Corps, the Board considered that such a ground was a good legal ground, seeing that one of the highest legal authorities in Ireland had given it as his opinion (which has been widely published) that it was not a good ground in law?


I know of no authoritative decision to the effect suggested in the question.
