§ Mr. MOORE
asked the Chief Secretary if he will grant the Return in the name of the hon. Member for North Armagh? [Mr. Moore,—Public Services (Appointments, including Appointments under the Irish Universities Acts and Grants under the Irish Land Acts and Evicted Tenants (Ireland) Acts),—Return setting forth the name, age, date of Appointment or of Grant or salary, address at time of Appointment or of Grant for five years preceding the Appointment of each person appointed without competitive examination to any position in the Irish Public Service, including positions under the Irish Universities Act, and of each person securing a farm under the Irish Land Acts or Evicted Tenants (Ireland) Act, where any of such persons were (a) Members of this House sitting at any time for Irish constituencies; (b) relatives or connections of such Members; or (c) members of the staff of the "Freeman's Journal" newspaper since the 1st day of January, 1906.]
§ Mr. BIRRELL
It would be quite impracticable to give this Return in the shape in which it is asked for, as the Departmental Records do not contain the information, which could only be procured by direct personal inquiry in each case.
