§ MR. JUSTIN MCCARTHY (Londonderry)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland when the regulations relating to "The Public Health Amendment Act, 1890," will be sanctioned by the Irish Local Government Board?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. JACKSON,) Leeds, N.
The regulations relating to the Public Health Amendment Act, 1890, were duly prepared by the Irish Local Government Board and laid before Parliament in accordance with the Act. A Report has been received that no Resolution has been passed by the House of Commons against the regulations, 4 and a similar Report is expected daily from the other House, upon receipt of which the necessary Order in Council confirming the regulations will be forthwith passed.
§ MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)
The terms of the Act prescribe two months as the period during which the regulations should be before either House; can the right hon. Gentleman explain how it is that the Report has not yet been received from the other House?
