§ MR. DILLON (Mayo, E.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, as to the course he definitely intended to take with reference to the Distressed Unions (Ireland) Bill.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
said, he was anxious, as he had always been, to press on this Bill; but the hon. Member had put down a Notice which made it impossible to bring on the Bill after half-past 12. Under those circumstances, he did not see how at present it was possible to go on with the measure.
