HC Deb 05 June 1907 vol 175 c688

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether any communications have passed between the Irish Office and the Treasury on the subject of the recent deductions from grants to county councils in Ireland in respect to the Land Act finance; and whether he can state when an opportunity for the discussion of this matter will be afforded.


The Irish Government and the Treasury are in communication upon the subject referred to in the Question, and I hope that either my hon. friend the Secretary to the Treasury or myself will shortly be in a position to make a statement in the matter to the House. I have no doubt that if desired the Government will give facilities for a discussion of the matter.
