To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state what steps, if any, have been taken by the Local Government Board for Ireland to carry into effect the provisions of their General Order with respect to dairies, cowsheds, and milkshops, which was to come into force on the 1st of the present month.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The execution of the General Order rests with the local authorities and their officers. The Local Government Board, when issuing the Order, addressed a circular letter to all of the local authorities explanatory of their duties and of the objects and of the principal provisions of the Order.
