HC Deb 03 February 1860 vol 156 c507

said, he rose to ask the Attorney General for Ireland, Whether his attention has been called to the late decision in the Court of Queen's Bench in Ireland, to the effect that the Common Lodging-house Acts do not extend to that country; and what course he intends to pursue in consequence of such decision?


said, that the attention of the Irish law officers had been drawn to the decision of the Court of Queen's Bench, the effect of that decision being that the code of law relative to common lodging houses which was applicable to England did not extend to Ireland. The Irish law officers did not concur in that judgment, but as no appeal could be made against the decision of the Court, he should ask leave next week to introduce a measure extending the Common Lodging-house Acts to Ireland.
