HC Deb 24 April 1879 vol 245 c985

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, If he will allow, between the printing and the Second Reading of the Dogs Regulation (Ireland) Act (1865) Amendment Bill, an interval sufficient (say three weeks) to permit of the Irish farmers expressing an opinion as to whether the tax per dog should be raised to 7s. 6d. or should remain as at present at 2s. 6d.?


Sir, I shall be happy to comply' with the wish of the hon. and gallant Gentleman. The Bill was printed to-day, and I propose to take its second reading on Friday, the 16th of May.
