§ Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland what steps have been taken to provide relief for the workpeople thrown out of employment by the burning of factories at Balbriggan and Bandon by forces of the Crown and the printing works at Athlone by persons unknown to the Government?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
I have been asked to reply. I am inquiring into the posi-2116W tion in these districts, but I am unable to hold out any hope that any special measures of relief will be instituted beyond the provision already made by the Out-of-Work Donation Scheme and the Unemployment Insurance Act.
