Journal of The Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland Vol. IV Part XXVII 1864
I do not propose in this paper to examine
the question, on which so much may be said, of the policy of a
more liberal outdoor relief in the present condition of Ireland.
My object is simply to state, as correctly as I can, the actual
facts—the provisions respecting poor Relief now subsisting in England
and Ireland—and to exhibit the differences of the powers
vested in the English and Irish authorities, without discussing how
far it would be expedient that any such powers should be exercised.
I shall quote throughout, as far as possible, the exact words of
the several documents to which I appeal, and I shall furnish such
references to the sources of my information as will enable any one
who wishes to verify every statement I make.
