§ MR. D. SULLIVAN (Westmeath, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the three years' contract for the printing for the Grand Jury for Westmeath expires at the ensuing Summer Assizes, and that there was no presentment on account of this contract made at the County at Large Presentment Sessions on Saturday last; and whether he will take steps to see that this contract is properly advertised for competition according to law, and is not given away privately to favoured contractors?
MR. J. MORLEY
The Secretary to the Grand Jury informs me that he received instructions on Saturday last from the County at Large Presentment Sessions to publicly advertise for tenders for printing. These tenders will be laid before the Grand Jury at the next Summer Assizes.
