HC Deb 14 December 1916 vol 88 c922W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he will state the total amount of law costs and other expenses incurred by both sides in the case in which the Court of Appeal in Ireland has held that a certain Order of the Local Government Board for Ireland was ultra vires; and whether all or any part of those costs and expenses are to be paid out of public funds?


The hon. Member doubtless refers to the case of the King (Local Government Board and Maurice Cosgrove)v. McLoughlin, clerk of the Clonmel Asylum Committee. The costs of the case have not yet been ascertained.
