HC Deb 29 July 1881 vol 264 c124

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenont of Ireland, If he will give directions that the families of persons arrested under the Peace Preservation Act should receive outdoor relief if in indigent circumstances, and if a majority of the guardians are in favour of such a course being pursued?

MR. W. E. FORSTER, in reply, said, the Local Government Board had issued an Order authorizing Boards of Guardians in Ireland to afford out-door relief to the families of the persons referred to.
