§ Mr. FFRENCH
asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that the New Ross and other urban district councils in Ireland have passed resolutions praying for the repeal of the Public Bodies Order, and that part of the Local Government (Ireland) Act of 1898 which relieved landlords of the rates on their tenants' houses with an annual value of £4 a year or less; and what action he proposes to take?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the question on this subject asked by the hon. Member for East Cork on the 28th February.
