§ MR. ARTHUR O'CONNOR (Donegal, E.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it was true that the Ballinasloe Board of Guardians had been superseded by the Irish Local Government Board; and, if so, upon what grounds?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
, in reply, said, it was true that the Board of Guardians referred to had been superseded by vice-Guardians appointed by the Local Government Board. Speaking without Notice, he could only say that the Guardians were superseded because they had shown themselves unfit for the discharge of their duties; but if the hon. Gentleman would put a Question on the Paper, he should be happy to get fuller particulars.
