HC Deb 26 April 1898 vol 56 cc1200-1

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland when the rules provided for in the Registration (Ireland) Act just passed will be issued; whether they will affect the form of requisition necessary to be issued under the Parliamentary Registration Acts in April and May; whether in cases where such requisitions have been already issued they will be re-issued; and whether the rules will first be issued in a provisional form?


The rules under the Registration Act are being prepared as rapidly as possible. I am informed they will not affect the forms to be issued in the present year, and that it will not be necessary to issue the forms a second time. The rules will not, in the first instance, be issued in a provisional form.
