Motion made, and Question proposed,
That leave be given to bring in a Bill to assimilate the Law affecting the Registration of Occupation Voters in counties and boroughs, and for other purposes."—(Mr. Attorney General.)

I presume this Bill is brought forward for the purpose of making the registration suit the extended franchise. Does it extend to Ireland?

The Act will not extend to Ireland. The Bill is merely for the purpose of assimilating the registration of borough occupation voters in this country to that existing in counties.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Bill ordered to be brought in by Mr. ATTORNEY GENERAL, Sir CHARLES DILKE, Mr. HIBBERT, and Mr. HENRY H. FOWLER.
