HC Deb 25 February 1887 vol 311 cc564-5
MR. HOOPER (Cork, S.E.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he is aware that Mr. Henry Hungerford Whitney, J.P., Nohoval Cove, Kinsale, refused to allow a declaration made by John M'Donnell, of Ballyvorane, in the Nohoval Electoral Division of the Kinsale Union, for the purposes of a Poor Law election, to be taken before him; whether such refusal has had the effect of depriving John M'Donnell of the vote he would otherwise have had at the Poor Law election; and, whether the attention of the Lord Chancellor of Ireland will be called to the matter?


I have no official information to enable me to say whether the allegations in this Question are correct or not. If any person feels aggrieved by any act committed by a Justice of the Peace in his magisterial capacity, his proper course is to represent the matter to the Lord Chancellor.
