HC Deb 14 May 1878 vol 239 c1883

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether the Government, in view of the practical inconvenience in matters of local government arising from delay, propose to take steps to insure the passing into Law, at as early a period of the Session as possible, of the Public Health (Ireland) Bill?


, in reply, said, he was fully alive to the importance of the measure referred to. The large number of Amendments to it of which Notice had been given were being fully considered; and he hoped the result would be that, with the assistance of hon. Members on both sides of the House, the Government would be able to pass the Bill into law that Session.
