asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If he can now state whether he will, in consequence of the present depression, permit such unions as may apply for delay to postpone the payment of the fourth instalment of the Seed Bate for another year?
THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. JOHN MORLEY)
I am at present unable to answer the Question of the hon. and gallant Member. I have, however, to say that communications are now in progress between the Irish Government and 1535 the Treasury, and the result I shall be able to state in a few days.
