Journal of the Dublin Statistical Society Vol.II, Part XIII, 1859
The result of all this machinery and divided responsibility is,
as we have seen, that the work is not done. Just as the Indian
mutiny showed the folly of the double government of India, the
Belfast case shows the folly of the double government of Ireland.
If this was put an end to, by the Irish Office being erected into
an independent department, the Lord Lieutenant would be enabled
to have the corporation accounts which are sent to him each year
audited under his direction in Dublin Castle, in immediate connection with the Irish Law Officers, who could advise on points of doubt
and take proceedings promptly and efficiently if required, instead of
waiting till the evil had grown to such height as it did by ten years
of neglect in Belfast.
