§ MR. GREGORY
said, he would beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether Her Majesty's Government intend to legislate for Irish Railroads during the present Session; and, if not whether before the close of it, they will make a statement as to the plan they mean to adopt in dealing with those interests in the future Parliament?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
Sir, Her Majesty's Government do not intend to introduce any measure on the subject of Irish railways during the present Session. I should say that by the issue of a Commission the Government have shown that they intend to enter into the question as a matter of Business, and give every consideration to the matter, but they will not be prepared in this Session to state what their views are.
