HC Deb 17 April 1891 vol 352 c849

Considered in Committee.

(6.54.) MR. KELLY (Camberwell, N.)

I beg to move that Progress be reported.

MR. T. M. HEALY (Longford, N.)

On that Motion I would point out the position in which we stand. In consequence of the opposition of the hon. Member for North Camberwell and some other hon. Members, the Irish Members find it absolutely impossible to pass any Bills through the House, even those which the Government do not oppose. I warn the hon. Member opposite that the Irish Members will in future allow no non-contentious measures promoted by private Conservative Members to pass.


I would point out that in this matter the Irish Members themselves have set a very bad example by the frequent objections which they have made.

MR. CONYBEARE (Cornwall, Camborne)

Both sides of the House ought to act on the principle of give and take.

DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)

No measure brought forward by an Irish Member has been allowed to pass either this or last year.

Committee report Progress; to sit again this day.
