§ MR.D. SULLIVAN (Westmeath, S.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Coronership of the County Westmeath is now over seven months vacant; whether the necessary steps have yet been taken to have the polling stations arranged for the election of the Coroner; if so, what prevents the issuing of the writ; and, whether the Clerk of the Peace has inserted the necessary notice for holding the election in the local papers and The Dublin Gazette?
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY UNDER SECRETARY (Colonel KING-HARMAN) (Kent, Isle of Thanet)
(who replied) said: The information I have just received is that the magistrates have made an order fixing the polling stations, and the Writ for the election issues from the Hanaper Office to-day.
