§ MR. THEODORE FRY (Darlington)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government, during the present Session of Parliament, to bring in a Bill similar to that mentioned in the Queen's Speech opening the Session of 1884, and subsequently introduced by the then Chief Secretary for Ireland, making the Irish Sunday Closing Act of 1878 permanent, and extending its provisions to the five cities and towns exempted from its full operations.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. JOHN MORLEY) (Newcastle-on-Tyne)
It is too early in the Session to answer positively; but we hope pretty confidently to bring in a measure similar to that which my right hon. Friend introduced in 1884.
