HC Deb 19 June 1896 vol 41 c1437

On behalf of the hon. Member for South Roscommon (Mr. HAYDEN), I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, what is the cause of the delay in having the Croom Union Labourers Order of 1894 confirmed; and, whether he will endeavour to expedite the hearing of the matter before the Privy Council, in order to meet the wishes of the Guardians to proceed with the building of the cottages before the winter sets in?


This Question appears to relate to an Order of the 10th January 1896, and not to an Order of 1894, as stated. The petitions against the scheme will be heard at the next Sitting of the Privy Council, at which appeals under the Labourers Acts may be set down for consideration.
