The Commissioners to Captain Kennedy - October 17, 1848
I AM directed by the Commissioners for administering the Laws for
Relief of the Poor in Ireland, to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 15th
instant, requesting to be informed what course the Commissioners would desire you to take
in the event of persons being evicted from their holdings or dwellings without due notice
having been served on the relieving officers.
In reference thereto, I am to state that the Commissioners think that the provisions of the 6th section of the Act 11 and 12 Vict., cap. 47, are imperative, and that the Guardians are bound in all cases to proceed for the penalty.
The Commissioners are not aware that it is necessary for the Inspector to take any step in such cases beyond bringing them under the notice of the Vice-Guardians.
