§ Mr. JOHN ROCHE
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether a magistrate of three years' standing is entitled to vote at an election of petty sessions clerk unless he has four attendances for each of the three years, or resident in the petty sessions district; and whether Edward S. Tenner, agent to Lord Clanricarde, was qualified to vote recently at Woodford, county Galway, being non-resident, and also not having any attendance for two of the preceding three years?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The qualification to vote at the election of a clerk of petty sessions is as stated by the hon. Member. The vote of the gentleman mentioned was disallowed on the ground referred to.
