The MARQUESS of WESTMEATH
observed, that the noble President of the Council was aware that in another place a proposal had been made and adopted, that the payment of certain advances made to certain distressed districts in Ireland should be allocated over forty instead of twenty years, as was originally intended. He wished to know whether the noble Marquess could inform him whether the advances made under Mr. Labouchere's letter were to have that privilege of time extended to them or not?
§ The MARQUESS of LANSDOWNE
believed that all the advances were to be considered as consolidated into one, and that they were all to have the benefit of the same extension of time. He would, however, inform himself more accurately on the subject, and then give the noble Marquess the information he required.
§ House adjourned to Thursday next.
