HC Deb 27 November 1906 vol 165 c1405

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Longford, Granard, and Mohill Boards of Guardians have passed resolutions approving of the recommendations of the Vice-Regal Commission on Irish Poor Law, and calling upon Parliament at once to give effect to the same; and what action the Government propose to take, and when.

(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) I have received resolutions to the effect stated, but, as I have said in reply to previous Questions, the Report of the Commissioners will require very full consideration, and I do not anticipate that I shall be in a position to state the intentions of the Government on the subject for some time to come.
