HC Deb 17 May 1897 vol 49 c623

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received a memorial from the Midleton (County Cork) Board of Guardians relative to the proposed unequal distribution of the Exchequer grant in, aid of the erection of labourers' cottages; and whether he will take steps to comply with the request contained in the memorial?


Memorials have been received from several Boards of Guardians in reference to the distribution of the Exchequer contribution in aid of the erection of labourers' cottages. I am not prepared to introduce further legislation on the subject. The proposed Amendment was considered by the Government when the Act of last year was under consideration, but was not adopted.
