§ MR. WEBB (Waterford, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether some 20 householders on the Scart Hely property (County Waterford), in Chancery, have lately been objected to on the Voters' List because their rates were not paid; and, if so, whether the Chancery Receiver or caretaker is to blame?
THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. J. MORLEY, New-castle-upon-Tyne)
I am informed that the Chancery Receiver is not responsible in this matter, as he paid all rates for tenants under £4 valuation on the estate in question, on the 21st November last. Payment was made to the rate collector, and the Local Government Board have been directed to inquire whether there has been any default on the part of any of the Union officials.
