§ MR. BLANE (Armagh, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland how many inhabitant householders in Gweedore, County Donegal, who are rated under £4 5s., are objected to in the lists of voters by the clerk of Dunfanaghy Union, by reason of non-payment of poor rate, for which the landlord is liable under the 1st and 2nd Vic, chapter 56, as immediate lessor; if any efforts have been made to obtain payment from the landlords before causing the disfranchisement of the tenants; and, if the Local Government Board will take the matter into consideration?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (MR. A. J. BALFOUR, Manchester, E.)
I find that it will take a few days to obtain the information necessary to enable me to answer this question. I must therefore ask the hon. Member to postpone the question until Tuesday, or any subsequent day.
