§ MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, whether he is aware that the Cloonkeen Parish Committee of the Congested Districts Board hold their meetings on a Sunday, and at a time when Protestant clergymen who are members of the Committee are unable to attend; and will he give instructions for these meetings to be held at a time when persons are not engaged in religious worship?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOE IRELAND (Mr. WYNDHAM,) Dover
The time of holding these meetings is left to the discretion of the Committee, I am not aware that inconvenience, as alleged, is caused to members of the Committee, but I will cause my hon. friend's suggestion to be brought under the notice of the Committee.
