§ MR. MORTON
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether his attention has been called to the following notice, which was issued by the Conservators of Epping Forest in March last:—The Conservators give notice that they will not consider any person entitled to a right of common who owns or occupies less than half an acre of old enclosure not covered with buildings;and whether, as this notice is in the 1433 nature of a bye-law, he has given his consent to it?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. PLUNKET,) Dublin University
My attention had not been called to the notice mentioned in the question until the question appeared upon the Paper. The notice is not a bye-law, or in the nature of a bye-law, and I have no authority whatever in the matter. I am informed by the City Solicitor that Conservators of Epping Forest used the words referred to for the purpose of intimating their intention to revise the Register of Commoners for the election of "Verderers," and as a guide to persons claiming, so that time might not be wasted by improper claims being sent in.
§ MR. MORTON
I beg to give notice that I will call attention to the matter iu Supply, and will move the reduction of the salary of the right hon. Gentleman.
§ MR. PLUNKET
I beg to inform the hon. Gentleman that the subject has nothing whatever to do with my salary.
