HC Deb 20 February 1896 vol 37 cc707-8
MR. W. J. CORBET (Wicklow, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, if he has received any representations as to the necessity for holding more Revision Courts throughout the counties for the convenience of persons claiming to be put upon the register of voters; and, whether he has taken any steps to carry out that object?


Representations have been received as to the necessity for holding Courts at Athboy, Co. Meath, and Newtown Mount Kennedy, Co. Wicklow, and in each case the application has been complied with. The late Government were asked to establish a Court at Clontarf, Co. Dublin, but it was held to be unnecessary to accede to this request.
