HC Deb 08 August 1901 vol 99 cc67-8
MR. MOONEY (Dublin County, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the desire of the general body of the electors of the Dalkey and Cabinteely polling districts of the county of Dublin that a revision court should be appointed to sit in that district; whether he is aware that at present persons from that district who have to attend revision sessions are obliged to travel several miles, oftentimes on several successive days, if they wish to secure the franchise; and whether there is any objection, seeing that the town hall is always available for the purpose of a court, to fix that place for the revision of the Dalkey voters' list.


I must refer to the reply given on the 26th ultimo‡ to the similar question of the hon. Member for the St. Patrick Division, to which I have nothing to add, except to repeat that any further representations that may be addressed to the Lord Lieutenant by those locally interested will, of course, be considered.

MR. CLANCY (Dublin County, N.)

What objection can there be to granting this request if the people want the change? † See Debates [Fourth Series], Vol. xcv., pages 427 and 1072. ‡ See preceding Volume, page 237.


That is a question for the Lord Lieutenant to decide.


I will bring this matter under the notice of the House the first opportunity I get, in order to show that the object in refusing the request is to keep Nationalist voters off the Register.
