I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the sum of £1,596 6s. 7d. due to the Committee of Management of the Limerick Lunatic Asylum for maintenance of patients in that institution from the 1st January to the 31st March, 1899, and certified by the Local Government Board Auditor as the amount due, will be paid out of the Irish Local Taxation Account; and, if so, when will the money be available.
I have nothing to add to my reply to the question previously addressed to me by the hon. Member on this subject.
As this is a matter which seriously affects my constituents, cannot the right hon. Gentleman give an answer?
It is not a question which can be dealt with by means of question and answer across the floor of the House.
Will the right hon. Gentleman say whether the money is due or not?
I am quite sure it is not due.
