HC Deb 30 June 1898 vol 60 cc637-8
MR. POWER (Waterford, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether under clause 37 of the Local Government (Ireland) Bill the charges for special expenses leviable off a contributory place in a rural sanitary district, either under the Public Health Acts or under any enactment directing expenses to be levied as expenses under those Acts, shall be raised equally over the whole union, or shall be levied solely off the occupiers in these contributory places?


Clause 37 of the bill deals only with guardians' expenses. Under clauses 49 and 90 the expenses referred to in the question will continue to be raised as heretofore, and occupiers will not be prejudiced by any alteration in the incidence of the poor rate proposed by the Bill.
