§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Longford, N.)
asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether the Government regard the passing of the Irish Land Bill, introduced in "another place," as vital to their existence, or do they so regard the passing of a Purchase Bill?
§ THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)
In answer to the hon. and learned Member, I have to say that the Government regard the passing of the Irish Land Bill as of vital importance, and they will use every effort belonging to them as a Government to secure that the Bill shall pass into law.
§ MR. T. M. HEALY
The right hon. Gentleman has not answered my Question. He has stated with regard to the Criminal Law Amendment (Ireland) Bill that its passing was "of vital matter for the Government," and I ask him whether that is the case also with regard to the Irish Land Bill?
