CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. ORAL ANSWERS. - RELIEF TO WIDOWS AND CHILDREN.

asked the Minister for Local Government and Public Health whether he will ask for a return from the Poor Law authorities throughout the Saorstát which will show the number of widows and children in receipt of relief, and whether he will state the total amount paid.

Steps are being taken to obtain the desired information.

Will the Minister insert the information in the Official Report?

It may take some time to get the information, but I will communicate with the Deputy in due course. I daresay that another question may have to be put down.
