4 IRELAND: RETURNS RELATING TO Query.— lf the Governors have ordered the payment of a portion of the Parlia- mentary Grant, under the name of Pension, to persons not qualified to receive it can the Commissioners of Accounts allow such payment in the Accounts of the Hospital; and if not, who will be held responsible tor the de- ficiency r Mr. TownsencCs Answer to the foregoing Query: Answer:— I do not see how it is possible for the Commissioners of Accounts to allow such payments, but 1 am of opinion that the Lord Lieutenant may in his discretion order such allowances; and if any payments have been made in error, hi? Grace should, be applied to for that purpose, otherwise 1 much fear that such loss must fall on the person making the payment. The Attorney and Solicitor General's Answer to the foregoing Query: We concur in the Answer given by Mr. Townsend to this Query. Query.— Are Militia men, whom the Law entitles to the Pension, to receive the same rates granted to the Line; or if not, in what proportion are they to be paid ? • Mr. Townsend's Answer to the foregoing Query: Answer:— The same, as I conceive. The Attorney and Solicitor General's Answer to the foregoing Query : We concur in the Answer given to this Query. « -- . ( Signed) Wm Saurin. 17 November 1812. Charles Bushe.
