§ MR. W. J. CORBET
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If, as President of the Local Government Board (Ireland), a charge of misconduct on the part of Mr. Dagg, Returning Officer, and George Driver, Poor Rate Collector, has been brought under his notice, in regard to the election of a Poor Law Guardian for the electoral division of Rathdangan, in the union of Baltinglass; whether the complainants have applied to the Local Government Board for a sworn investigation; and, whether their application will be complied with?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
Complaints have been made with respect to the course pursued by the Returning Officer and the Collector of Poor Bates in connection with this election, and a sworn inquiry has been asked for. The Local Government Board are not yet in a position to say whether there is any necessity for such an inquiry, as they have not received the explanation which the officers concerned may have to offer.
