§ MR. DILLON (Mayo, E.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he is now in a position to state when the Second Reading of the Agriculture and Industries (Ireland) Bill, the Tithe Rent-Charge (Ireland) Bill, and the Charitable Loans (Ireland) Bill will be taken.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
I hope to reach the Agriculture and Industries Bill to-night. As regards the other two Bills, I can make no statement.
§ MR. DILLON
Have the Government any idea of proceeding with the Charitable Loans (Ireland) Bill? It is a Bill in which all classes in Ireland are intensely interested.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
We shall be very glad to see the Bill pass. I should have thought it would have met with no opposition, but, as the hon. Member is aware, that is not the fact; there is a good deal of opposition from his own side of the House.
