§ MR. M'LAREN (Cheshire, Crewe)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, How soon he expects to fulfil his promise to reprint and issue to Members all the Whiteboy Acts, and Acts amending the same, enumerated in the Interpretation Clause of the Criminal Law Amendment (Ireland), and also such portions of 6 & 7 Will. IV., c. 13, as relates to the appointment of Resident Magistrates; and, whether he will undertake to have them distributed by such a date as will leave Members time to study them before the House is asked to come to a vote on the second reading of the Bill?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
The reprint of the Whiteboy Acts, so far as they refer to the Criminal Law Amendment (Ireland) Bill, and so far as they are unrepealed, will be ready by Monday, and will be in the hands of Members early next week.
