HC Deb 08 July 1880 vol 253 c1921

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether, as much misconception existed as to the area over which it was proposed that the Compensation for Disturbance (Ireland) Bill would he operative, he would place in the Tea Room of the House a coloured map showing the extent of that area as compared with the rest of Ireland?


said, that having received from the hon. Member private Notice of the Question, he had asked for a map such as he had referred to. He might add that, as four Unions had been scheduled to parts of which only the Bill would apply, he would have to move an Amendment confining the operation of the Bill to those parts of the Unions in question. He could not say whether the map would be ready before the Bill was proceeded with in Committee.


hoped the map would be so shaded as to show the degree in which distress existed in Ireland.
