said, he wished to ask Mr. Solicitor General for Ireland, Whether there is any Law in Ireland for the prevention of the unlimited sale of poison; and, if not, whether it is the intention of Government to bring in a measure for that purpose?
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. DOWSE)
, in reply, stated that there was an Act of Parliament at present in force in Ireland regulating the sale of arsenic. The provisions of the Pharmacy Acts, however, of 1852, 1868, and 1869, which imposed limita- 985 tions on the sale of poisons generally, did not extend to Ireland, and he saw no good reason why they should not. He hoped, before long, to be able to lay on the Table a measure on the subject.
