HC Deb 07 February 1893 vol 8 c680

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been directed to a letter addressed by the. High Sheriff of Dublin to the Dublin Corporation regarding the exclusion of the official representatives of the Dublin Corporation from the Committees of the Irish Lights Board; whether he has received from the Corporation of Dublin a communication regarding the representation of the Dublin Corporation upon the Constitution of the Irish Lights Board; and whether it is the intention of the Irish Government to consult with the Board of Trade with a view to giving effect to the suggestions of the Dublin Corporation? I should also like to ask the right hon. Gentleman if, in order to allay the prevalent irritation, the Government will introduce legislation dealing with this matter?


I answered the question on the Paper yesterday. I am aware there is some irritation, and the question of bringing in a Bill to deal with the subject will, if necessary, be considered.
