§ MR. TULLY
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state what steps have been taken to fill up the vacant dispensary appointments in the counties of Waterford and Wexford, for which no medical candidates offered themselves; and whether he can state how long this state of matters has continued and when it will be terminated.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR THE LAND (Mr. WYNDHAM) Dover
There are two vacancies; one, in County Waterford, occurred in August. In this case the guardians are considering a proposal to re-arrange the vacant and an adjoining district. The vacancy in County Wexford occurred at the end of June. An election to fill this vacancy is fixed to take place on Saturday next.
