HC Deb 05 August 1898 vol 64 c280
MR. SHEE (Waterford, W.)

I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether it will be within the discretion of a county council to decide in what town in the county it will hold its meetings; if not, what authority has the right to decide the question; whether there is any reason why a county council should hold its meetings in the assize town for the county if the council is of opinion that some other town in the county is more central and more convenient of access; and whether, under 5 and 6 Will. IV., c. 26, which provides that the place of holding assizes shall be as directed by the Lord Lieutenant in Council, or under the Local Government (Ireland) Bill, the Lord Lieutenant in Council has any authority to fix or alter the place of meetings of the county councils?


Under Article 34 (3) of the Adaptation Order in Council the meetings of a county council may be held at such place as the county council front time to time direct. The enactment referred to in the third paragraph relates to the fixing of places for holding assizes, and will not affect the place of meetings of county councils.

Forward to
