MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN
On behalf of the hon. Member for the St. Patrick Division of Dublin, I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will consider the advisability of amending the Local Government (Ireland) Act so as to enable moderate expenses to be allowed for meetings of the general council of county councils, in the same way as expenses are allowed in England to the association of councils under the English Act.
§ MR. ATKINSON
The matter is under consideration, but the Government cannot give any pledge that it will be dealt with during the present session.
