SIR HERVEY BRUCE
said, he would beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether he proposes to relieve the Irish Poor Rates from the payment of Medical Officers and the expenses of Workhouse Schools; and, if so, when?
THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
said, in reply, that the question put by his hon. Friend referred to the circumstances which were brought before their notice by the Motion of the hon. Member for Meath. Having been in favour of that Motion he should certainly he ready to take all the steps that were necessary to afford the relief which appeared to be justly required. All he could do was to give instructions to that effect when the next Estimates were prepared.
