§ MR. DANE
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury is he aware that very great uneasiness prevails in Ireland, among civil servants and officers and men of the Royal Irish Constabulary, at the non-production of the Schedules to the Bill for the amendment of provisions for the Government of Ireland; and will he undertake to place these Schedules in the hands of Members before the House adjourns over Easter?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. E. GLADSTONE,) Edinburgh, Midlothian
The Schedule of this Bill relating to the Police has been distributed to-day. The Schedule relating to the Civil Service has been postponed at the wish of members of the Civil Service itself, who are anxious that it should not be laid on the Table until my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary has had an opportunity of seeing them in Ireland, and he has gone to Dublin for that among other purposes.
§ MR. SMITH-BARRY (Hunts, S.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether the sum of £17,371, for repayments to baronies in Ireland under "The Tramways and Public Companies (Ireland) Act, 1883" (as printed in the Civil Service Estimates for 1892-3, page 20), is included in the item "Railways, £141,000," on page 4 of the Return (No. 91 of the present Session), showing the effect of the financial proposals in the Government of Ireland Bill?
§ MR. W. E. GLADSTONE
My answer is simply "Yes." If the hon. Member wishes to see the particulars I shall be happy to show them to him.
