asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether he proposes, after introducing a measure to establish in Ireland a now area of taxation for county purposes, to legislate further, during the present Session, with a view to alter and improve the Grand Jury Laws in that part of the Kingdom?
§ SIR MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH
, in reply, said, his hon. Friend seemed to have failed to apprehend the purport of the Answer which he had some time ago given to the hon. Member for Limerick (Mr. O'Shaughnessy) in connection with the subject. He then intended to say that, finding the area of Poor Law chargeability was very much connected with county taxation and management, he hoped to introduce a scheme to the notice of the House which would include both those questions. He had such a scheme in preparation; but he feared some time must elapse before he could 751 present it to the House. It dealt with a difficult and complicated subject, and ought not to be proceeded with without full and careful consideration.
