§ MR. D. CRILLY (Mayo, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, if he is in a position to say how soon after Easter he will submit his proposals for the development and extension of light railways in Ireland?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
I am not yet in a position to assign any date to this Bill. I hope, however, that it will be read a second time before Whitsuntide. I desire to have the advantage of communication on the subject with the new Chairman of the Board of Works.
