§ MR. MOORE (Armagh, N.)
I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture (Ireland) if he is aware that the management of the exhibition in Dublin have decided to carry it on on Sundays; and if, in view of the dissatisfaction caused by this decision, the Department will use its influence to prevent this course being continued.
§ THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. CHERRY, Liverpool, Exchange)
My hon. friend has asked me to answer this Question for him. It appears from statements in the public press that the executive of the Irish International Exhibition recently decided to open certain parts of the exhibition on Sundays. The Department have no authority over the executive of the exhibition, and do not feel called upon to take any action in the matter.
