§ MR. MACALEESE
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he will provide in the Local Government Bill for the quorum of county councils and county boroughs to be as recommended in the Report of the Select Committee on Local Government and Taxation of Towns (Ireland)—namely, one-sixth of the total number of members of the Governing body when such total number exceeds 60?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
The draft Standing Order, which has been issued as a Parliamentary Paper, provides that the quorum shall consist of one-fourth of the Members. The matter is one which may properly be raised when the Bill is in Committee.
