HC Deb 23 March 1885 vol 296 cc225-6

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Why voting papers for the election of guardians in the Dunfanaghy Union have not been issued to forty-four occu- piers in the Magheraclogher Division, twenty-nine occupiers in the Munacladdy Division, and fourteen for the Dunlewy Division, who claimed in respect of holdings the valuation of which is higher than the yearly rent; and, why voting papers have not been issued to Hugh O'Donnell, Dunlewy, whose aggregate valuation is £5 10s. and to Mr. Heburn, whose tenements in. actual occupation are valued at about £60?


Voting papers have not been issued to the persons referred to in the first paragraph of the Question, because they are all valued under £4, and are, therefore, not ratepayers within the meaning of the Act. A voting paper has been sent to Hugh O'Donnell. The Returning Officer states there is no such name as Heburn on the rate book of the Union.
