HC Deb 09 May 1904 vol 134 c769

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will explain why the local technical committees as such were not in any way consulted by the Department in reference to the new directory, seeing that the paid officers of those committees were summoned to Dublin by the Department to take part in a consultation about the directory; and whether he will take steps to avoid a recurrence of this action.


In respect of the first part of the Question I have nothing to add to my reply to the hon. Member's previous Question of the 18th April.† I will bring the suggestion at the end of the Question under the notice of the Department.
