§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the proceedings at the last meeting of the Kilrush Poor Law Board, when the condition of certain evicted tenants in West Clare was considered; and whether the Government intend to make any effort to relieve these people?
MR. JOHN MORLEY
A Press report of the proceedings at the meeting of the Guardians to which reference has been made, has been brought under my notice, and the Local Government Board have been asked to report as to the condition of these evicted tenants. I may observe, however, that the Guardians appear to be aware that these people require assistance, and are prepared to continue to afford relief from the rates, and that, upon the information at present before me, there, does not seem any reason for the intervention of Government in the matter.
