HC Deb 19 August 1889 vol 339 cc1660-1
MR. HAYDEN (Leitrim, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, considering the fact that any delay in passing the Suck Drainage Bill will have the effect of keeping a large number of people out of employment, of throwing: back, and probably rendering useless, some of the works already carried out, and of accumulating interest; and, also, taking into account that the Third Reading of the private Suck Drainage Bill was carried by a very large majority, including the majority of the Irish Members, he will take steps to press, forward the Bill dealing with the proposed grant?


The delay, perhaps the loss, of this and other Bills for improving the material prosperity of Ireland has not been due to any shortcomings on the part of the Government, but to the vehement and protracted opposition offered to them by a certain section of the House.
