§ MR. MCKILLOP (Armagh, S.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland how many applications to the Commissioners of Charitable Donations and Bequests in Ireland for advice under the Act are now pending and undisposed of, and the dates when the said applications were received by the Commissioners; in how many applications during the past twelve months did the Commissioners refuse to give any opinion or advice whilst declining to state to applicant any ground for their decision; and how many of the four applications in which the Commissioners did not deem it expedient to give any opinion or advice related to Catholic charities.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The secretaries to the Commission of Charitable Donations and Bequests inform me that this Question will be submitted to the Commissioners for consideration at their next meeting on the 12th instant.
