HC Deb 13 February 1900 vol 78 c1376
MR. POWER (Waterford, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received a copy of a resolution adopted by the Joint Committee of Management of the Waterford District Asylum complaining of the action of the Treasury in charging the whole rate in aid for Irish asylums for the year ending 31st December, 1898, upon the Local Taxation Account, thus saddling that fund with full liabilities for the entire year 1898, during nine months of which year scarcely any income accrued to that fund; and, if so, what reply has been given to that resolution, and what action it is proposed to take to remedy the state of things complained of by the resolution.


This matter is under the consideration of the Treasury.
