HC Deb 23 February 1893 vol 9 c171

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland when it is proposed to fix the allowances to be made to Local Registrars under "The Local Registration of Title (Ireland) Act, 1891," to enable them to discharge the duties cast upon them under that Act; and whether, pending a definite arrangement, and seeing that the Local Registrars have now been discharging duties under the Act for over a year, some payment on account will be made to them in view of the extra clerical assistance which they have had to provide?


The Treasury is now considering the allowances referred to, and arrangements will be made so that all sums due up to the close of the present financial year, on the basis of the allowances when fixed, may be paid in full before the 31st March next.
