HC Deb 20 April 1863 vol 170 c398

said, he wished to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether any Reports from the Poor Law Inspectors have reached him as to the state of destitution in the western districts of Galway and Mayo; if so, whether he will lay these Reports before the House; if not, if he will order the Inspectors to report as to the condition of those districts?


, in reply to the question of his hon. Friend, begged to say that he was constantly in the habit of receiving Reports from the Poor Law Inspectors as to the condition of the different districts in Ireland. By reference to their last Report his hon. Friend would see what was the general state of Ireland in the estimation of the Poor Law Commissioners. The Government would have no objection to lay any of the recent Reports on the table of the House.
