HC Deb 21 April 1898 vol 56 c632

On behalf of the hon. Member for West Waterford, I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether it is intended under the Local Government (Ireland) Bill that a county council shall be set up for each of the ridings of the county of Tipperary, with the same secretary for both county councils?


The County Tipperary is administered by two Grand Juries, one for each riding, and for each of these fiscal bodies a County Council will be set up by the Local Government Bill. The same person now acts as secretary to the Grand Jury for each division of the county, and under Clause 72, Sub-section 7, of the Bill he would become secretary to both councils at the passing of the Bill, though after the adjustment of accounts other arrangements might be made if found expedient.
