I beg to ask Mr. Attorney General for Ireland whether, considering the decision of the King's Bench with reference to occupiers of labourers' cottages being entitled to sit on public boards, steps will be taken to reinstate Johnson Magee, an occupier of a labourer's cottage, who was returned by a majority for Jerpoint electoral division, Thomas-town Union, and who was compelled to resign in consequence of a letter from the Local Government Board.

The person mentioned has resigned. His resignation has, I believe, been accepted. There is no power to reinstate him in his office.
