§ MR. MACARTNEY (Antrim, S.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury what are the separate sums which make up the item "Railways, £141,000, in. Class 1 of the Statement of Estimated Expenditure on page 4 of Parliamentary Paper, No. 91 of this Session (showing the effect of the financial proposals in the Government of Ireland Bill as regards Ireland)?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. E. GLADSTONE, Edinburgh, Midlothian)
The particulars are these: The original Estimate for Railways, Ireland, was £107,371. A Supplementary Estimate was £34,786, making £142,157. But there is a small anticipated saving of £1,157, which reduces this to £141,000. If the hon. Member wishes I will supply him with the figures in writing.
§ VISCOUNT CRANBORNE (Rochester)
May I ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant whether he can give the House any information as to when the 5th Schedule of the Home Rule Bill will be produced?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. J. MORLEY, Newcastle-upon-Tyne)
I answered a similar question yesterday. I am at work upon it. "I scorn delights and live laborious days" in order that it may be produced on Monday.
