§ MR. MACARTNEY (Antrim, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in estimating the population and number of houses within the municipal boundary 1070 of the town of Lisburn, care has been taken to include that portion which is situated in the County Down?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
The Irish Census Commissioners report that since the publication of the preliminary Parliamentary Abstract, it has been ascertained that the figures given therein for Lisburn town are incorrect, as the portion of the town in the County Antrim has not been included. The correct figures, as shown by the enumerators' abstracts, are:—in County Antrim, 1,785 inhabited houses; population, 9,517; in County Down, 525 inhabited houses; population, 2,732—total, Lisburn town, 2,310 inhabited houses; population, 12,249.
