§ Mr. HAZLETON
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he was aware that the urban council of Warrenpoint had adopted a by-law restricting the rights of the boatmen who plied for hire between 1765 Omeath and Warrenpoint; whether the Local Government Board had sanctioned such by-law; and, if so, whether, on representations as to its hardship on the boatmen of Omeath being made, the Board would reconsider the question?
§ Mr. REDMOND BARRY
The Local Government Board have no information regarding the by-law mentioned in the question.
§ Mr. MacVEAGH
Are the Warrenpoint Commissioners not quite within their rights in passing this by-law.
