HC Deb 19 July 1881 vol 263 c1271

asked, What Supply—the Civil Service or the Army Estimates—was to be taken after the conclusion of the Land Law (Ireland) Bill; and, whether it was intended to restore the rights of private Members on Tuesdays and Fridays, after the Land Law (Ireland) Bill had passed through Committee?


, in reply, said, that as he did not consider that any lengthened interval would be necessary between the Committee and Report, his duty would be to ask for precedence for the final stage of the Land Law (Ireland) Bill on every day in the week. As far as Supply was concerned, the first duty of the Government would be to endeavour to make progress with the Civil Service Estimates.

In answer to a Question by Mr. HEALY,


said, he would bring forward on Report a proposal providing for some interval between the passing of the Land Bill and the creation of future tenancies.


asked, What were the intentions of the Government respecting the purposes to which the Irish Church Fund was to be applied; and, how much would be used in carrying out the Land Law (Ireland) Bill?


, in reply, said, it was intended to make the Irish Church Fund available only for one limited purpose in regard to the Land Law (Ireland) Bill—namely, that of dealing with arrears.
