§ LORD HERSCHELL
asked whether Her Majesty's Government intended to introduce a Bill to assimilate the municipal franchise in Ireland to that which existed in England?
§ *The EARL of RANFURLY
In reply to the noble Lord's question, I have to say that the present Government is by no means unfriendly to the general principle of such a Bill, but the Government cannot undertake to deal with the question in the present Session.
§ House adjourned at a Quarter before Six o'clock, to Thursday next.
