§ MR. SCHREIBER
said, he would beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer with respect to the "inhabitant occupiers" of parishes in which compounding Acts are now in force, but the whole or part of which it is proposed for the future to include within the limits of Parliamentary Boroughs, from what time the personal liability of such occupiers to the Poor Rate will commence; Whether, in his opinion, they will be in a position to avail themselves of the first Registration of Voters under the Reform Act of last Session; and whether, the repeal of a compounding Act in one part of a parish will entail its repeal in the remainder?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
said, in reply, that the Question of his hon. Friend divided itself under three heads. With respect to the first two, his hon. Friend would find that they were specifically noticed in the Report of the Boundary Commission, recently laid on the table. The subject to which the Questions referred was under the consideration of the Government, and it would be his duty, when the House had considered the Report of the Commissioners, to introduce a Bill to carry out their recommendations. His hon. Friend would then see that the Government had duly considered the two points. With respect to the third Question, "whether the repeal of a compounding Act in one part of a parish will entail its repeal in the remainder?" he apprehended that there was no doubt that it would.
