The Labourer’s Act

Regarding the application received for the amount of the expenses connected with the enquiry recently held under the Labourer’s Act, the alleged exorbitance of the charge was strongly commented on by the Guardians, particularly the amount claimed by the shorthand writer, £59.10s.10d.
Mr. O’Conor said the Board did not ask shorthand writers to be present.
Mr. Casey – What value did he give us? None.
Mr. Pigott : It seems the Local Government Board Inspector could not do without a shorthand writer.
A Guardian: I think in cases like that, a local shorthand writer ought to be employed. I don’t see why they should be going for strangers, while there are plenty of capable writers in Limerick.
The Board soon afterwards adjourned.
Taken from “The Munster News and Limerick and Clare Advocate”,
April 2, 1887
