§ MR. MICHAEL AUSTIN (Limerick, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland when he intends to introduce his promised Bill amending the Labourers (Ireland) Acts?
§ CAPTAIN DONELAN (Cork, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that many Boards of Guardians in Ireland have postponed proceeding with further schemes of cottages pending the promised Amendment of the Labourers' Cottages (Ireland) Acts; and whether, in view of the urgent necessity that exists for the adoption of these schemes, he will take the earliest opportunity of introducing the proposed Bill?
MR. J. MORLEY
I may say that a Bill amending the Labourers' Cottages (Ireland) Acts has been framed, and that when a suitable opportunity presents itself I shall introduce it.
§ MR. M. AUSTIN
Will the right hon. Gentleman explain a little further what he means by "suitable opportunity"?
