§ MR. P. MARTIN
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Is he not aware he will receive all reasonable co-operation from Irish Members in passing such Bills as may be introduced to con- 74 solid ate, simplify, and amend the laws relating to the functions of the Board, of Works and Drainage in Ireland; and, when does he propose to bring in these Bills?
§ MR. COURTNEY
Sir, these Bills have been drafted in a first edition; and I expect the observations of the Board of Works upon those drafts to-morrow. I will deal with the subject as soon as possible; but fear I cannot at present name a day for the introduction of the Bills.
