HC Deb 25 May 1880 vol 252 c433

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to continue the provisions of the Glebe Loan (Ireland) Acts 1870 and 1871, for affording facilities for obtaining loans for the erection and improvement of Glebe Houses and acquiring lands for Glebes, and which facilities under the Act 41 and 42 Vic. c. 6, will expire on the 30th August 1880?


I am sorry I am unable to give any very definite reply to the Question of my hon. Friend, as the matter it relates to is one that belongs quite as much to the Treasury as it does to the Irish Government. I shall confer with my noble Friend the Secretary to the Treasury on the subject; and, meanwhile, would ask my hon. Friend to repeat his Question in two or three days, or else wait until the Government declares its intentions with regard to the Bill brought in by the hon. Member for Longford (Mr. Errington).
