§ LORD CHARLES BERESFORD (York)
I beg to ask the first Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the success- 844 ful visit of their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of York to Ireland last year, Her Majesty's Government can see their way to advising another Royal visit in 1898?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. G. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
In, answer to my hon. Friend, I have to say that, as I think he will himself see, this is a matter which concerns the domestic arrangements of the Queen and the Royal Family, and can hardly be said to come within the sphere of the Government.
§ MR. D. H. COGHILL (Stoke-upon-Trent)
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman, can the Government see their way to establishing a permanent Royal residence in Ireland?
