HC Deb 16 June 1921 vol 143 cc622-3W
Captain C. CRAIG

asked the Chief Secretary if any awards for malicious injuries in the County of Galway have been paid during the last year; if so, to what amount; and, if not, why the Government grants to local authorities have not been used for the purpose of paying these claims?


Forty-three decrees awarded against the Galway County Council have been paid either in whole or in part out of Local Taxation (Ireland) Account grants withheld from the council. The total amount so paid is £13,405. Further awards are in course of payment.
