§ MR. HAZLETON
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether it is intended to appoint an additional auditor this year under the Local Government Board for 1350 Ireland, and, if so, for what reason; what will be the duties of the person appointed; what will be the qualifications required; will they include a condition that the person appointed shall be a member or an associate of the Chartered Accountants' Society of Ireland; and, if not, will he explain why this condition is not imposed.
§ *MR. BIRRELL
I will inquire. It may be that power to appoint one has been taken, but no decision has been arrived at as to the necessity of doing so.
