asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether he proposes to bring in any measure to remedy the grievances complained of by the Poor Rate Collectors in Ireland, and the particulars of which a deputation from that body has laid before him?

, in reply, said, that the poor rate collectors of Ireland had made representations to the Government, stating that they had grievances on three points; first, as to their duties in the Registration of Parliamentary voters; second, as to their duties in the revision of the Jury list; and thirdly, with respect to the valuation of property. He did not propose to bring in a Bill dealing with these matters, for this reason, that the first two points were under the consideration of Committees of that House, and recommendations on the subject might be made that Session; and the proper time to consider their claims in respect to the third point was when the scheme for the alteration of the valuation of property in Ireland was before the House.
