§ On the Motion for the Second Reading of this Bill,
§ DR. TANNER
, who rose and said: It does not matter. It is only an Irish Bill. I would appeal to my hon. Friend——
§ * MR. SPEAKER
Order, order! If the hon. Member continues to interrupt the business of the House I shall have to take measures to repress him. [Cheers.]
THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND
said that under the Housing of the Working Classes Act of 1890 there was a doubt as to whether the sanitary authorities of small towns in Ireland had power to acquire land compulsorily in order to erect houses for the working classes, and the Bill was intended to set the matter right.
§ Bill read a Second time, and committed for Thursday.
