§ MR. MULDOON (Wicklow, E.)
To ask the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture (Ireland) whether the definition given to the words home and cottage industries, in Section 30 of the Act creating the Department, by the Law Officers in Ireland has operated to prevent the Department assisting some cottage industries within the spirit but outside the letter of the Law; and whether he proposes next session to secure an amending Bill to remedy this defect.
§ (Mr. T. W. Russell.) The Answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. The second query is under consideration.
