HC Deb 28 July 1881 vol 264 cc18-9

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If his attention has been called to the charge of Lord Justice Deasy to the Waterford City Grand Jury, in which he said— I am very glad to tell you that your labours on this occasion will be very light. There is one bill only to be sent up to you; it is a case in which a young lad or boy is charged with larceny. He was returned for trial yesterday, and there is nothing on the Constabulary Reports, no serious offence in the city; and, when you have disposed of that bill, which will not occupy much of your valuable time, you may return to your homes; and, if he still maintains the necessity of declaring the city a prescribed district?


, in reply, said, he had no doubt that the Charge of Lord Justice Deasy to the Waterford City Grand Jury was correctly reported. He (Mr. W. E. Forster), however, was still obliged to say that the Executive did not feel that they could cancel the prescription of the City of Waterford.
