§ MR. JAMES O'CONNOR
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord 1105 Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will introduce a Bill for the reconstitution of the Irish Lights Board, in order to bring the Board into harmony with the representative principles of the Local Government (Ireland) Act, 1898.
§ MR. ATKINSON (for Mr. G. W. BALFOUR)
This question should more properly be addressed to my right hon. friend the President of the Board of Trade, the Board of Irish Lights being under the jurisdiction of the Department he represents. There is no analogy between the Local Government Act and the statutory powers under which the Irish Lights Board are constituted.
