§ MR. MACALEESE
On behalf of the hon. Member for Cork County, S. (Mr. EDWARD BARRY), I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland (1) Whether he will introduce a Clause into the Poor Relief Bill creating ballot voting for the election of Poor Law Guardians in Ireland; and (2) whether he will assimiliate the Poor Law to the Parliamentary Franchise?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
The answer to both Questions is in the negative. Such provisions would be outside the purpose of the Bill.
