§ MR. SLOAN
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland 454 whether he is aware that several applications have been made to the General Registry Office, Dublin, for certificates of birth, and that the applicants were informed that the entry could not be traced; and, if so, can he explain the cause.
(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) Applications for certificates may be unsuccessful on one of two grounds—the insufficiency of the information given, or the non-registration of the birth. The cases of unsuccessful search are comparatively few.
