HC Deb 05 July 1904 vol 137 c650
MR. O'SHEE (Waterford, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether [he is aware that the County Waterford County Council has passed a resolution urging that he should withdraw the clause in the Irish Development Grant Bill, which proposes to transfer to the Treasury the sum of £150,000 standing to the credit of the Petty Sessions Clerks Fund; and whether he will re-consider the matter, and adopt the course suggested.


No Sir; the resolution does not appear to have been brought under my notice, In reply to the second part of the Question I would refer to my reply to the similar Question of 20th June by the hon. Member for South Tyrone.‡
