§ MR. CAPTAIN DONELAN
On behalf of the honourable Member for North Tip-perary, I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether any arrangement has been come to by the Local Government Board with regard to altering the boundary between King's County and the county of Tipperary in relation to the poor law divisions of Carrig, Clohaskin, Rathcabbin, Redwood, and Riverston, situated in the county Tipperary and at present attached to the Birr Union in King's County; whether he is aware that the guardians of these divisions, both elected and ex officio, have expressed themselves in favour of their being attached to the union of Borrisokane, in their own county, as being more convenient for them and also in accordance with the wishes of the ratepayers concerned; and if he will have inquiry made with the object of having such an arrangement carried out, in accordance with the provisions of clause 44 of the Local Government Bill?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY TO THE LORD LIEUTENANT OF IRELAND(Mr. GERALD BALFOUR,) Leeds, Central
No change is proposed in the Parsons-town Union, the portion in King's County and the portion in county Tipperary, each forming a rural district. This arrangement, which has the advantage of leaving existing boundaries unaltered, is subject under the Bill to an appeal by parties interested.
