asked the Chief Secretary the total amount of the deficit in the various Grants, other than the agricultural Grant, payable to the county of Wexford during the year ending 31st March, 1913; and if he will give details of this deficit and explain how it has arisen?

The total deficit in Grants payable to the county of Wexford during the past financial year was £1,733 4s. 4d., made up as follows:—

(1) Medical and Educational Expenditure in Unions220129
(2) Salaries of Sanitary Officers in Rural Districts26179
(3) Salaries of Sanitary Officers in Urban Districts1311
(4) Maintenance of Pauper Lunatics55274
(5) Estate or Death Duty Grant in respect of land purchase liability in the County92055
The abatements under the headings (1) to (4) inclusive were due to the insufficiency of the income of the Local Taxation Account to meet its liabilities. In addition to the foregoing, sums amounting to £2,848 3s. 10d. were deducted in respect of extra police expenses pursuant to Orders made by the Lord Lieutenant under Section 80 (2) of the Local Government (Ireland) Act, 1898.
