HC Deb 02 March 1897 vol 46 c1445
MR. JAMES O'CONNOR (Wicklow, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he can say how soon he is likely to introduce the Poor Law Relief (Ireland) Bill?


This Bill is nearly ready, and I hope to be able to introduce it shortly, though I am not yet able to fix the day. In view of the fact that the Rill is substantially the same as that introduced last year, I would venture to suggest that it should be allowed to be read the First time after 12 o'clock.
