§ MR. M. HEALY
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland what amount is still unexpended of the sum of £200,000 voted for emigration in Ireland by Section 20 of "The Arrears of Rent (Ireland) Act, 1882," and Section 12 of the Tramways and Public Companies Act, proposed to be repealed by the Land Purchase Bill; and whether the Government propose, as promised in Committee, to hand over any unexpended balance to the Congested Districts Board?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I understand that of the grant of £150,000 for emigration purposes a sum of £16,827 9s. 10d. is still unexpended. The sum of £50,000 for migration grants is still available. Nothing would be gained by handing over this unexpended balance to the Congested Districts Board.
