§ MR. J. MACVEAGH (Down, S.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the resolutions passed by local authorities in County Down and other parts of Ireland in opposition to the proposed validation of the Public Bodies Order of 1904; and whether these representations will receive his personal consideration.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) I am aware that resolutions have been adopted by several local authorities in opposition to the clause in the Local Government Amendment Bill for the validation of the Public Bodies Order of 1904. These resolutions will receive consideration.
