CORRESPONDANCE:

                                                Poor Law Commission Office, Dublin

                                                            26th February, 1855

Sir – With reference to the resolution of the Board of Guardians of Drogheda Union on the 15th instant, stating that the Guardians have on hand  a large quantity of stockings made by the inmates of the Workhouse, and requesting to be informed whether the Commissioners would sanction the disposal of any of them for sale, I am directed by the Commissioners for administering the laws for relief of the Poor in Ireland, to state that as a general rule they do not approve of the sale of articles manufactured in Workhouses, as such a practice has a tendency to interfere with the labour market, and thus to increase pauperism; but in the present instance as it appears that the articles proposed to be sold would be injured by being kept in store, the Commissioners will not under the circumstances raise any objection to the proposal.

I am at the same time to suggest that the Guardians should call for tenders for the sale of the articles referred to.

                                                By order of the Commissioners

                                                            W. STANLEY, Secretary.

 

To the Clerk of the Drogheda Union.
