§ MR. P. J. KENNEDY (Westmeath, N.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether ho is aware that there is no provision prescribed for summoning a special meeting of an urban council to transact the business of the quarterly meeting when the first fixture of same falls through for want of a quorum; and whether the Local Government Board for Ireland will take steps to apply to the proceedings of urban councils the provisions of Article 12 (3) and Article 16 (4) of The Local Government (Procedure of Councils) Order, 1901.
(Answered by Mr. Atkinson.) The Local Government Board is not aware that inconvenience has been caused by the absence of such provision from the urban district councils' general rules; but, as the question of revising these rules is at present under consideration, the matter will receive attention.
