§ Mr. DORIS
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether he would cause directions to be given to the Registrar-General, Somerset House, that the English Census Schedules of 1851 might be searched for evidence of age by or on behalf of Irish-born claimants for old ago pensions who resided in England in 1851, and who had no other means of establishing their age qualifications for such pensions, or that certified extracts from the schedules might be issued to such claimants on payment of fees at the rates charged in similar circumstances by the Deputy-keeper of Public Records in Ireland?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Burns)
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question, and I am in communication with the Registrar-General on the subject.
