§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney General what is the Act which prohibits the growing of tobacco in the United Kingdom, and whether, in the case of Ireland, a Bill for the repeal of such Act would be supported by the Government.
§ *THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (SIR RICHARD WEBSTER,) Isle of Wight
There are several Acts of Parliament affecting the question, but the one referred to by the hon. Member is probably 1 and 2 William IV., chapter 13, which revived the provisions of 12 Charles II. As to the last part of the hon. Member's question, I must refer him to my right hon. friend the Chief Secretary.
