HC Deb 24 April 1896 vol 39 c1639

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant off Ireland, if he is aware that a very general desire exists among those interested in the welfare of the destitute poor in Ireland that a scheme of classification of the inmates of workhouses should be provided for; and will he consider this phase of the subject with a view to give it effect in the Bill for the Amalgation of Poor Law Unions in Ireland?


One of the chief objects of the Poor Relief Bill is to enable a better system of classification to be adopted for all classes of indoor poor in Ireland.
