§ MR. DILLON (Mayo, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can give the amounts produced for each of the last ten years by the local licences proposed to be transferred to the Irish Local Loans Fund Account, the amount of the grants in aid in respect of certain poor law charges which are now to be withdrawn for each of those years, the produce of the local licences for each of the last ten years transferred to the local 836 authorities in England by the Local Government Act of 1888, and the sum required during each of these years to meet the grants in aid in respect of which the local licences were transferred.
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
It would take some days to collect this information, and it could hardly, in any case, be given in the form of an answer to a Question. If the honourable Member will place on the Paper a Notice of Motion for a Return I will consider whether it can be granted.
