§ SIR THOMAS ESMONDE (Wexford, N.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if the Local Government Board for Ireland will agree to allow collectors of county rates to close their account, on 1st May and 1st November instead of on 31st March and 30th September, where it can be shown that the collection of the rates will be thereby facilitated.
(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) I would refer the hon. Baronet to my reply to the 9 similar Question put to me on Monday last by the hon. Member for South Wexford.†
