§ MR. J. CLANCY (Dublin Co., N.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he has any objection 1168 to extend to Ireland the provisions of the Light Railways Bill with such modifications as the present system of local government in that country may render necessary?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. J. BRYCE,) Aberdeen, S.
It would be necessary to alter so very largely the machinery of the Bill to make it fit with the present system of local government in Ireland that I fear the suggestion of the hon. Member, even apart from other aspects of the subject, is impracticable. In any case I should have to consult the Irish Government upon the subject.
