§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Louth, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, before Clause 5 of the Local Government Bill is reached, or otherwise, he could give a Return showing the number of towns in Ireland which have been partly or wholly separated by Provisional Order or local Act from the Grand Jury jurisdiction, the amount still contributed by the town councils of such places to the Grand Juries, and showing whether this includes all county at large charges or the nature of the contribution?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
The information referred to in the Question will be found at Page 59, and subsequent pages, of the last published Returns of Local Taxation in Ireland (see House of Commons Paper, No. C—8602 of 1897).
