HC Deb 06 July 1858 vol 151 c1001

said, he rose to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether any period has been fixed to commence the inquiry into the Municipal Affairs of the borough of Belfast, and who are the Commissioners appointed to hold such inquiry?


said, there was no precise time appointed for the Commissioners to commence their inquiry. He, however, hoped that as soon as the Circuits were completed, the gentlemen appointed Commissioners would commence their business. Those gentlemen were Mr. Major and Mr. Coppinger. Those Commissioners were men of great experience, and the Government would be happy to afford them the assistance of an actuary or of any person they might require.
