HC Deb 15 November 1917 vol 99 c611W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he is aware that the Dublin Corporation have passed a resolution in favour of having municipal elections in July instead of January, as is now the case; and if he will see that their wishes are put into operation and have this alteration included in the Representation of the People Bill now before the House?


The Local Government Board have received a copy of the resolution of the Dublin Corporation on this subject, but I am told that no similar resolutions have been received from other municipal bodies in Ireland, and the subject does not seem to me one which should be dealt with differentially.
