§ MR. SHEEHAN (Cork Co., Mid)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he proposes to introduce this session any legislation for the better housing of Irish fishermen.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The general question of the housing of agricultural labourers, and of artisans and others living in villages too small to support town Commissioners, is receiving consideration. The hon. Member is no doubt, aware that the expression "agricultural labourer," for whom a cottage may now be provided, includes fishermen who are engaged in agricultural work for hire at some period of the year.
