§ MR. P. SMYTH
asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, If in the Bill he proposes to introduce for the repeal of certain ante-Union statutes he will include the Act of the Parliament of Ireland 1912 known as the Convention Act; and if the said Act be not now operative as Law in Ireland?
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. PLUNKET)
Sir, although I am not the Attorney General, I hope the hon. Gentleman will allow me to reply to the Question. The Act to which the hon. Member refers, commonly called the "Convention Act" is still in force, and it is not the intention of the Government to deal with it as repealed in any Bill which may be introduced for the revision of the Irish ante-Union statutes.
