§ MR. WILLIAM JOHNSTON (Belfast, S.)
I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether, in Sections 23, 24, 25 and 26 of the Dublin Corporation Bill, the word "occupier" includes persons of both sexes, and whether women will thereby be entitled to exercise the municipal franchise in Dublin.
§ *THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND
I regret that I am unable to answer the hon. Member's question, as to do so would violate the practice that the Law Officers should not answer abstract questions of this kind.
