§ MR. MACALEESE
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has any objection to grant a Return setting forth the number of county council seats contested in the County of Monaghan at the recent elections, setting forth the names of the candidates, together with their politics, if ascertainable, and the number of votes received by each candidate.
§ MR. G. W. BALFOUR
Printed notices containing the names of the candidates, and the number of votes recorded for each, have been placarded in every 36 electoral division of the county. It is not proposed to lay a copy of these notices on the Table of the House. I have no official knowledge of the politics of the candidates.
